Applications are closed for NRC 2017. Please check back here next spring if you are interested in participating in NRC 2018. The details below are subject to change but are provided for your convenience.


Applications are accepted from anyone who:

  1. received a Ph.D. on or after 2013; or

The number of participants is limited. The deadline for receipt of applications is March 24, 2018. By March 31st, applicants will be notified of whether they have been selected to attend. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.


The selected applicants will be asked to pay a small ($100) registration fee to confirm their participation (this price is subject to small changes). However, contingent on the availability of funds, support to defray travel and housing costs will be offered, though we invite participants to get partial funding of their own.
