The participants

The summer school will admit up to 24 PhD students and is designed for studentsin the early stages of their research. To be admitted to the program, students must be enrolled in a doctoral program. Students must submit a description of their research project as part of the application, since the key focus of the summer program is to help students improve their research projects. Students should expect to significantly refine and change their projects in light of the feedback given during the summer school; thus the optimal time to participate in the summer school is after students have an approved project and after they have surveyed the relevant literature.

Participants having dinner

The students may have begun research, but it is better to participate before any serious writing up of findings.
