Based on our learning from the June 1st session, we have decide to change the application model for the July 6th session.
Session will start on July 6th for all pathways (including Bioinformatics)
Acceptance to the program will be in four phases.
(July 20 Update): Notification emails were sent at 10am PST on Sat June 20 to people who had submitted applications. If you did not receive one check your spam and all of the emails that you have.
No pathway or role or team has been assigned to any student at this point.
Phase 2: Webinars will be conducted during Week 1 to give you accounts and help you get started with the STEM-Away collaboration channels. Returning leads/participants/observers do not need this step.
Phase 3: Once you have your accounts, you will have access to the introductory training material for all pathways. The earlier you attend a webinar and get setup, the sooner you will have access to the training material. Clear guidelines will be given to help you in this phase of self learning.
Phase 4: By the end of Week 1 (07/11), you will fill out a form where you enter your choice of pathway and role. Additionally, you will fill out a self-assessment that summarizes your learning from the training material provided and justifies your choice of role. Guidelines will be provided for the self-assessment. Final selection will be decided based on the self-assessments filled out by applicants. You will be assigned to teams in Week 2 (07/13) if selected. The project will run through Week 5.
