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.

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:
I appreciate the opportunity to interact with many talented Ph.D students and post-docs as well as the researchers who are admired by the world during the one week. I got strongly stimulated and could realize my level in the world by other more talented scholars. The encounter with these future researchers will be the fortune in my research life.
How has GSAS helped you develop a global perspective?:
Working with people from various parts of the world has helped me understand what people with very different backgrounds bring to the table and how to use these skills in order to increase the quality of the results.
