Unfortunately, given the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, the International Space Weather Camp is canceled for this year. 

If you are a student at one of the CPU2AL Partner Institutions and are interested in this opportunity, please click the apply button after reviewing the eligibility conditions below. You will need to create an account on our sign-up page to complete this application, you will have to upload your resume and academic records (for example, transcripts), provide a 150 word essay about why you want to join the program, and provide contact information for two or three references (two required). You may choose to provide two or three references, but if you provide three, all three references need to upload a reference letter for your application to be complete. Your references will get an email right when you submit your application – you are responsible to check with them beforehand whether they want to provide a reference for you and let them know that they will get an automated email from us. You will get a notification email when a reference uploads a reference letter. If one or more of your references have not uploaded a letter by the deadline, your application is deemed incomplete. Academic records must be in English and must display the name of the institution, name of the student, completed coursework and grades and must show the equivalent of at least your last year of full-time postsecondary school attendance.
