The camp is intended for students from any European Union country, currently in one of the last three years of pre-university education. In Portugal this corresponds to secondary education (ie students from the 10th, 11th or 12th grade) but the names may differ in other countries. In other words, students should in principle have been born in the years 1999, 2000 or 2001. The working language in the camp is English.
The number of participants is limited, and the students will be selected according to their academic merit and potential. The process of application and selection includes an interview (to be carried out in English) to be held via skype on May 27 or 28.
Portuguese students selected to participate in the camp will not incur any costs. For students selected from other countries, it is currently estimated that the cost of participation will be about 400 Euro plus the cost of travel to the nearest airport (Porto). Naturally these students can try to get support from our international partners (by contacting them directly) or from other local entities.
