Bidding on a project

If your instructor or program director opens bidding for your projects (as opposed to directly assigning students into projects), you can indicate your interest in specific projects by ranking your top choices.

Placing your bid

You will receive an email notification announcing that project bidding is open. Click the link, outlined in red in the screenshot below, in this email to go straight to bidding (you don't even have to log into your account):


Completing your bidding

The screen below is an example bid. Outlined in red is an expanded details view. Click the Details button to expand this view and read more about the project. Key project details are intentionally concealed here but once you are assigned to a project you will see all information including the project sponsor and a complete overview of the project itself. Click the numbered buttons to order the projects based on your preference. 1 is the highest ranking you can give a project. Depending on how many choices you are being asked to rank, this may be a drop-down menu rather than buttons.


Note that you do not need to assign a ranking to all projects and that the system will not let you assign the same ranking to multiple projects To undo a ranking simply click the highlighted number again to remove it:


When you're done click submit and your instructor or program administrator will be notified of your selection. When you are assigned to a project you will receive an email notification with the link to access it. More info on accessing your project here.
