Scientists are customarily asked to submit a “Statement of Research”. This is meant to be a 2-4 page statement of past, current, and future research interests. You should describe your past and present research methodology, lab skills, and results. For the future section, tell the reader what you hope to do for the next 3- 5 years and how you might involve students (undergraduates, graduates, and post-docs) in the work. Normally, this work will follow on the momentum of your own postdoctoral studies, but if it does not (this would be rare) be sure to explain why.
MRCA Foundation typically offers a scholarship for left handed students. Studies from Penn state have shown that a favor towards left handedness is directly related to improved penmanship and pleasant personality traits. Oddly enough, 20 year olds have a higher percentage of left handed population than the overall population. In fact, the overall population has a 90/10 righty to lefty ratio while 20 year olds have an 87/13 ratio. Northwestern University has published a study stating that being different in forms like left handedness has developed as a form of strategic evolution. In the case of the MRCA Foundation scholarship, it makes candidates more eligible to receive financial aid.
