Both student and faculty ARC Fellows will participate in a twice-monthly lunch seminar during the Spring 2013 semester. For participating in the program for the entire semester, each ARC Fellow will receive an unrestricted research grant of $1,000 (each student-faculty pair will receive a total of $2,000).
