Divided into four categories:

  • Health Research Proposal
  • Behavioral Research Proposal
  • Environmental Research Proposal
  • Physical Science Research Proposal

Covers all areas of science if the project is in the planning stages. Do not use this category if you have data to present.


Accepted in the following categories:

Health Completed Project

Medicine & Health: Study of diseases and health of humans and animals – dentistry, pharmacology, pathology, ophthalmology, nutrition, sanitation, dermatology, allergies, speech and hearing, etc.

Biochemistry: Chemistry of life processes – molecular biology, molecular genetics, enzymes, photosynthesis, blood chemistry, protein chemistry, food chemistry, hormones, etc.

Behavioral Completed Project

Behavioral & Social Sciences: Human and animal behavior, social and community relationships-psychology, sociology, anthropology, archaeology, ethnology, ethnology, linguistics, learning, perception, urban problems, reading problems, public opinion surveys, educational testing, etc.

Environmental Completed Project

Environmental Science: Study of pollution (air, water, and land) sources and their control; ecology.

Microbiology: Biology of microorganisms – bacteriology, virology, protozoology, fungi, bacterial genetics, yeast, etc.

Zoology: Study of animal life – behavior, animal physiology, animal pathology, animal genetics.

Botany: Study of plant life – agriculture, agronomy, horticulture, forestry, plant taxonomy, plant physiology, plant pathology, plant genetics, hydroponics, etc.

Physical Science Completed Project
