In support of the Summer Institute, supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), SDSC awards a limited number of scholarships to cover on-campus room and board (dorm style – private room, shared common area and bathrooms). Indicate on application if you would like to be considered for room and board scholarship. Scholarship funds only apply to room and board and are not available for any other travel expenses. Registration fee is still required from all attendees.

Scholarships and attendance are limited so you are encouraged to apply early.
