|Become a GSAS Scholar|
Who can Apply as a GSAS Scholar?
Senior graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from all relevant science and engineering disciplines are eligible to apply. Senior graduate student means a student who is nearing completion of his/her doctoral thesis (3rd, 4th, or 5th year).
Please note that your research experience need not be specific to the session topic. For example, you may have expertise in microscopy or device physics that can be applied to the session topic.
Applications will be reviewed by a panel of Session organizers and representatives from the host institution. GSAS is dedicated to ensuring a balance of disciplines, gender, expertise, and participation from different parts of the world.
Scholars who are selected to participate will receive full travel and lodging support. You must have a passport that is valid at least 6 months beyond your travel dates. You must travel and be lodged with the group.
In accordance with our sponsor's guidelines, in order to receive travel support, applicants from US institutions must be US citizens or US Permanent Residents.
Scholars may not invite spouses or accompanying persons.
Research Fellowships Awarded after the Session
Host institutions may award postdoctoral research fellowships to GSAS Scholars with the most promising research plans.
You will be able to edit your application until the application deadline. While you are an applicant, your profile will only be visible to GSAS reviewers. If you are accepted as a participant, your profile will be displayed on the GSAS website.
What I appreciated most:
was the rare opportunity to interact at such an intense level with other graduate students and postdocs from different groups around the world, and the fellows. This concerns both the project work, and the social events. I also appreciated the opportunity to learn about Minatec, and to attend talks by such famous researchers as Iijima and Kroto.
How will your GSAS experience benefit your future research?:
Our team's project was not in my direct field of interest. I was able to not only learn about a new topic, but to practice thinking about scientific ideas and hurdles from a new perspective.
How has GSAS helped you develop a global perspective?:
GSAS primarily served to expose research centers in Europe and as well individuals that could be institutions/collaborators for future research.
