Scholarships are for 10 weeks in the period late November 2015 to February 2016.

CASS is offering up to 14 scholarships for the 2015/2016 program. Each scholar will undertake a research project under the supervision of a CASS staff member. Projects are offered in the areas of astronomy/astrophysics, physics, software engineering, computer science/engineering and electrical engineering.
