If you are interested in submitting your organization as a potential AMR client, with an idea for one or several projects, please complete the application so that we can learn more about you. We will contact you promptly to discuss your submission further. You may also contact the AMR staff directly with any questions you may have.

The AMR program often receives many more project applications than we have teams. If your project is not selected for our October – March AMR program, we will automatically consider your application for our other field study programs that take place January – June.
