Do I Qualify?
- Applicants cannot be a US Citizen or Permanent Resident.
- Applicants should have a strong desire to pursue an advanced (PhD) degree and should be highly motivated to learn.
- Applicants should have completed at least 2 years of university studies, achieving high grades.

While all international students are welcome to apply, preference will be given to students who are currently outside of the United States

- Applicant should attend a university whose academic calendar does not allow them to attend a research program during the traditional American summer months (June - August).
