General Track

Deadline: March 23, 2020 TBD

Candidates currently attending fourth year of high school (17/18 years old) are eligible to apply for the GENERAL Track to join Webvalley 2020. FBK is offering scholarships covering full board accomodation and travel expenses (no international flights covered).

Please sign up and complete the application form at the link at the bottom of the page.

FBK will provide full tuition to courses, lab and social activities and bus transfer.

Selection will be based on:

  1. School reports and CV
  2. Motivation letter (why you want to participate to the WebValley Summer School and how you can contribute), written by the student
  3. Recommendation letter, written by a teacher/mentor
  4. TLC interview

The motivation letter is especially important for the admission: FBK scientists are looking for smart young people interested in exploring interdisciplinary research and build a novel open source solution, enjoying the idea of working in team, with the right mix of scientific entrepreneurship and passion for sharing data and ideas.
