Application and Eligibility

We invite all qualified candidates to apply to the PCOR PRIME program. If you are unsure if you should apply, contact the with questions.

Strong preference is given to candidates with a specific PCOR project in mind, and a plan to design and initiate that study over the next year. In addition, while we do not require any specific level of ‘protected time,’ we are asking for Departmental acknowledgement of this activity, and its support of the applicant and the project.
