How to Apply for Funding
Take a look at the guidelines for CBD funding:
- Are you in good academic standing?
- Are you at the advanced stage of your Division II?
- Have you filed your Division III?
- Will your divisional project engage two of the three components of the study of culture, mind/brain, and human development?
- Do you need help paying for a CBD-related field study?
