Who reads the essays?

Faculty members, graduate students, and post-docs (all members of the science and engineering community) will be reviewing your essays.  The people reviewing your essay may or may not have a degree in your field so it’s good to write for a broader audience. Also, it’s good to remember that the people reading your application all have a technical background and it is very important to go into detail about your technical interests. The essays should be written to give the reviewers a greater understanding of your academic, personal, and professional qualifications to participate in TBSI summer undergraduate program.
