Only US citizens are admitted. Applications consist of a form that students complete on line and, in addition to that,
the four items below, which will also be submitted on line. We use an automated system for receiving and processing applications.
In the column to the right, a link is provided to that service.
Below are notes on the four items required, in addition to the form:
(1) A one-page letter of introduction describing why the student desires to participate and how the workshop will
complement their near-term academic and professional goals. The more professional the letter looks and reads, the better.
(3) The student's resume.
(4) An unofficial transcript for all the universities attended. For verification
purposes, official versions will be required of students selected for participation in the workshop, but that will be needed much later. We ask that applicants
assess how easy their transcript is to read. If their school's unofficial transcript is poorly formatted,
for example with difficult to understand class names, poor choices of fonts, excessive white
space, or distracting watermarks, they should consider providing a nicely formatted version that they create themselves.
The presentation of their academic record does have an impact on the reviewers' ability to fairly evaluate
their qualifications. Because schools often encrypt their transcripts, we will be asking for an image file (JPG).
(5) One letter of recommendation.
The deadline for application submission is Monday, January 23, 2017.
Those selected will be notified by Monday, Feburary 13, 2017.
Those selected will be required to reply with acceptance and official transcripts by Monday, February 27, 2017.
Questions may be addressed to the coordinator of the workshop:
- James L. Hill, Ph.D.
