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.

No need to submit anything else through this website! You only need to enter your data into the "standard cover sheet" and can ignore the information about uploading items to your "portfolio."
