We will not consider applications from undergraduate students or students who are earlier in the graduate career, but we encourage those women to apply when they reach this stage of their academic career.
Q. May International students apply?
A. International students are welcome, but you must currently be studying or working in the US.
Q. May I participate in this symposium if I have participated in previous years?
A. No. If you have participated in previous years, you are not eligible to participate again.
