Annual Report

You will need to maintain a record of your research activities on the UMD annual review site: https://apra.umd.edu. The information in this form can be updated at any time, but must be updated in a final form every spring, usually with a deadline around March 1. You will receive an e-mail reminder of this deadline at your UMD e-mail address. It is very important that you update and submit the form by the deadline.

You will also be asked to submit an annual summary of your research accomplishments for the annual progress report for the Cooperative Research Agreement. This will be a short write-up at a level accessible to general readers and including some attractive graphics. You will work with your NIST mentor in developing the report contents. We will provide more information as the due date for the report approaches.
