ITCE Short Course Application
The application window for both 2017 ITCE short courses is now closed. Decisions should be made by the end of February.
Applications for Course 1 (Iso-Camp) and course 2 (SPATIAL Short Course) are handled independently. Please make sure you apply for the course you want to attend!
Applications for the two courses are structured slightly differently but for the most part request the same information. Applicants should prepare the following information before beginning the application process
- CV (as a pdf file)
- Letter of recommendation from your primary advisor (graduate or postdoc; Iso-Camp applicants will receive instructions regarding where to send signed letter as a PDF file. SPATIAL applicants' letter-writer will receive an email with link to upload letter as a pdf file)
- Short statement describing your interest in the course (<1,000 characters including spaces)
Graduate student applicants who wish to apply for participant support from the ITCE program should also prepare:
- A second letter of recommendation from someone familiar with your academic qualifications (Iso-Camp applicants will receive instructions regarding where to send signed letter as a PDF file. SPATIAL applicants' letter-writer will receive an email with link to upload letter as a pdf file)
- Short statement describing your level of need and other sources of support available to you (<1,000 characters)
