NEXT:  Send us an email to grow-2018@umich.edu and introduce yourself!  Please tell us in just a few sentences 1). Why you might be interested in the GROW conference and 2). About your previous experience (if any) with math conferences or math research.   

FINALLY:  Ask a faculty member at your institution to email grow-2018@umich.edu with a paragraph recommending you for GROW 2018.
