  1. Hello,
    Unfortunately I could not participate in 2017-2018 program, so I was wandering if the program will be run again for 2018-2019 term.
    I am interested to take part in such an academically beneficial and experience-full program.
    Thanks for the response in advance

    1. Hi Sukhrob, thanks for writing to ask. It looks like my reply did not go through before. I wanted to let you (and others) know that the applications will come out next month–most likely, in late April. Keep an eye out for more info on this website!
