To submit an application for the 2018 of the Computational and Cognitive Neuroscience Summer School, you must complete the form below. The summer school is highly competitive and we maintain a limited in class size to ensure a good instructor to student ratio. We strive for a diverse class each year and balance student backgrounds, so we encourage applications from students from any background and especially applications from countries with lower academic profiles. Student selection is based on the degree to which you are a good fit for this summer school so, in addition to your CV, you will be asked to submit a personal statement explaining why this course, in particular, is a good fit for you.

You will need to submit the following documents through the form linked at the bottom of this page:

Curriculum Vita (Required, 5MB maximum)
Submit an up-to-date CV.

Statement/Essay (Required,1000 words maximum)
Submit a personal statement that explains why you want to attend this course. In the essay let us know something about your background, why this is the appropriate time for you to attend the summer school and what you hope to gain from the course. Please do not repeat details from your CV but you should summarize your research and research goals. Please also state your previous experience with neuroscience data and with programming languages (in particular Python).

Coursework or Transcript (Required,5 MB maximum)

Submit a list of relevant coursework (neuroscience, maths, programming, etc.) with grades, or submit a transcript.

Letters of Recommendation (two) (Required,5MB maximum)
You must submit two letters of recommendation. These letters can be either submitted directly as a PDF (5MB max) or they can be submitted blindly by providing the name and email of the individual providing the recommendation. For blind recommendations, please also notify the individual to expect an email with the details for them to submit the reference.


Financial support request (Optional,5MB maximum)
The summer school will make available some individual stipends to help offset the costs of attending the summer school, normally by waiving some or all of the fee covering tuition, room and board. We assess need based on a statement of need and we also use it to determine partial support or (exceptionally) travel support. So, please be as complete as possible, including providing information about available travel allowances, grant status, lab funding status and any other information that might be important. If you know you will not need financial support, you do not have to submit this document. While we cannot guarantee financial support to any individuals, in the past we have been able to provide a significant number of waivers.

Applicants will be notified by email of selection decisions.
