Frequently Asked Questions (SRP Online)
Q: I registered my application for the program. What's next?
A: The number of participants for this program is limited to 250 students. Those who are eligible will receive an instruction on how to log-in to the program. Our committee will make decisions on applicants on a rolling basis. We expect to have all the applicants notified by July 5, 2023. Please check your “junk”mail folder if you have not received a mail from us by July 5.
Do not attempt to sign-in as a member for this site. If you are approved to participate, we will provide you an instruction how to "log-in" instead of "sign-in". Only approved participants will be able to log-in to the Summer Research Program. If you attempt to sign-in, you may not be able to participate in the program. This is because we cannot override your email address in the system if you were approved to participate at later date.
Please note that this is an educational program designed for students who are enrolled in College/University with our partner universities overseas. Since we do not have technical capability to deliver the program with more than 250 participants, limited space are be available for participants from non-partner universities.
Q: Are all the talks "live" online sessions?
A: No, the Research topics are on-demand videos and leaning materials available for you to watch as many as you like at your own pace during the program period. Therefore, time difference should not be a major problem.

The schedule of live discussion will be posted on or after July 1, 2023.
