The Mark Diamond Research Fund (MDRF) is currently searching for graduate students to serve on the Summer 2017 review council. Additionally, we are looking for 5 alternate council members.

It will additionally include one council meeting where you will be given a full brunch/lunch as a thank you for your time. The council will be reviewing approximately 20 applications in each meeting.
