Specific competencies Scholars will develop doing mentored independent research include:

  • Identify and frame innovative research questions
  • Develop testable hypotheses
  • Integrate varied methodologies in rigorous data collection and analysis
  • Interpret generated evidence accurately
  • Communicate results effectively through multiple dissemination strategies including oral presentations, written manuscripts, and non-scientific publications
