The application period for NIEES is closed, and all available slots have been filled. Although no further applications are being accepted, there may be future seminars. In which case international students will still be welcome to apply, but we will most-likely be unable to cover the costs of airfare to and from the seminar.
The agenda will likely focus on issues relevant to the U.S., however a number of faculty and speakers attending the institute have worked on international issues, particularly regarding China and India. The amount of international focus will also depend on how many of the students attending have an interest in international issues.
A draft agenda of the sessions to be held during the institute has been posted. The full agenda will be posted in early spring 2013.
Senior undergraduate students may apply. Applications from current graduate students and post-docs will have priority, however, so to will those senior undergraduates who have applied or been accepted to graduate school.
Yes, NIEES is open to students and post-docs from non-US universities, however these students will have to find their own funding for travel to and from the seminar. Food and lodging will be covered for international students.
