Applications for AstroCamp 2020 are open, and will close on 30 April.
AstroCamp is an academic programme in the field of astronomy and physics, organised by the Centre for Astrophysics of the University of Porto (CAUP), that aims to stimulate curiosity and critical thinking.
The camp takes place from 9 to 23 August 2020 in a tranquil setting, away from the stresses of urban centres. The programme is intended for secondary school students, in one of their final three years of education before university from 42 different countries, including (for the first time) Canada and the United States.
Shortlisted candidates, selected on the basis of their motivation and academic merit, will be invited to a Skype interview during the weekend of 30-31 May. The successful candidates will be offered places around 3 June and will need to confirm attendance and complete the required paperwork by 12 June 2020.
Depending on the evolution of the COVID-19 outbreak in Portugal and elsewhere, the organisers reserve the right to exceptionally hold the camp virtually as a precautionary measure. Candidates and parents will be kept informed of any relevant developments.
