Progress Reports for Trainees Completing their First Year:

All progress reports can now be submitted directly through the MBTG website on our Submit Progress Report page. The progress report has two parts:

  • Part I: Trainee Information Update.  This is a form requesting updated information about you, your progress in your graduate program, and your academic activities.
  • Part II: Upload Progress Report Documents. This form will allow you to upload and submit one or more documents at a time.  Required documents are:
    • Report. Briefly describe your predoctoral research project, the progress you have made during the past year, and your future plans for the project.  Avoid jargon, bearing in mind that it will be read by people who are not experts in your immediate field.  Formatting: Your report should be a Word document, no longer than four double-spaced pages of standard type (at least 12-point typeface) using 1″ margins. References, diagrams and illustrations are not included in the four page limit. Reports that do not conform to this format will be returned and may jeopardize your renewal. 
    • Current UW transcript.  Unofficial is ok.  The transcript can be a separate pdf, or can be embedded as an image in the same Word document as the report.

Note: Your mentor must also submit a trainee evaluation.  He or she will receive an email with instructions and a link to the evaluation form.  Instructions for your mentor can also be found at: http://depts.washington.edu/mbtguw/for-faculty/trainee-evaluations/.

Deadline: All components, including the mentor evaluation, are due July 1.

    • Rationale for continuation as a trainee, only if you are requesting a third year of funding on the training grant.  Explain your reasons for requesting a third year in the training program. How has the MBTG enhanced your training to date? Briefly describe your projected research goals for the next year. Provide a timeline for your thesis writing. How will continuing in the MBTG help you to achieve your goals? Are there particular activities that you would like to help organize or participate in to enhance the program?  Formatting: This component should be included in the same Word document as your report, at the end of the document, and should be no longer than two double-spaced pages of standard type (at least 12-point typeface) using 1″ margins.
