The ESRF, together with the ILL, has teamed up with Université Joseph Fourier in Grenoble for a Summer Bachelor Programme from 3rd June to 13th July 2013. This programme is open to English speaking scientific undergraduate students in their 2nd to 4th year at university.
Tuition fees amount to 500 € plus costs for accommodation and insurance. To cover these costs, the ESRF and the ILL are offering grants to four students. These students will also benefit from a two-week placement in a research group at the ESRF or ILL (from 15-26 July 2013) directly after completion of the programme at the university.
Students applying for a grant have to complete the same application form as regular participants. Please select the course “large-scale facilities” and check the box “interested” for the research programme at the ESRF/ILL/EMBL.
The deadline for applications is 22nd March 2013.
Go to the registration procedure. Use this form if you are not applying for a grant.
