Online Winter 2021 USPAS Session

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we are holding all classes online. We are currently working through the details and will post more information as it becomes available. Please note that to accommodate the hardships associated with online learning in these difficult times, we are shortening the hours per day and extending the number of days of our usual sessions. Courses that were previously 2-weeks in duration are now 4-weeks. Courses that previously were 1-week in duration are now 2-weeks.

Application forms will be available soon. Class sizes will be limited. All attendees will be required to take their course for university credit. Those unable to enroll for credit (including international students not currently enrolled in a U.S. university) will be accepted on a case-by-case basis. Due to class size limits, all applicants must submit a cover letter explaining why the USPAS is important to your career and describing prior research experience, work with or as a user of particle accelerators; your CV/resume; one letter of recommendation.

The Registration Fee is $500.00. Currently-enrolled university students may request a scholarship. Scholarships will be awarded without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation or national origin. Consideration will be given to balancing class sizes.
