Based on the applications we receive, we plan to select around 15-20 participants for the summer program.

We will then initiate the applicants-faculty matching based on mutual research interests, with the goal to have all candidates selected by March to make sure we have all the visa, health insurance and housing issues addressed in time. We will then work with the selected applicants on an individual basis to address the pending issues in time to be ready for the summer.

We look forward to hear from you in great numbers this year!
