Planning a MAP during the Academic Year
Application The MAP application form is available from the Registrar's Office, including an online printable form at http://www.grinnell.edu/offices/registrar/additionalinfo/forms/. The deadline for proposing a MAP or any other Independent Study during the academic year falls on Monday of the week following the end of the pre-registration period. Deadline for students who were on Off-Campus Study the semester prior to the MAP, or who are applying for the second semester of a two-part MAP is the Friday of the first full week of classes.
The application should set out a clear set of goals and a highly detailed plan, including the questions or problems you intend to address and how you intend to go about addressing them.
Supplies needed to complete the project (poster, artwork, photocopies, etc.) are the responsibility of the student and the academic department. If your MAP will incur special costs or expenses, please be sure to include a tentative budget with the application.
