Strings 2018 Fellowship


   We have established the Strings 2018 Fellowship to support up to 18 graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Strings 2018 Fellows will be selected from applicants to the Gong Show session based on the abstracts of their presentations and their CV’s and publication lists, and they will be granted slots for their oral as well as poster presentations.

   The Strings 2018 Fellowship will be used to reimburse a round-trip discount economy class airfare from the nearest airport of each Fellow's home institution to the Okinawa airport. The reimbursement amounts are upper-bounded based on the OIST travel policy as follows.

From Japan actual amount
From Taiwan $   300
From Korea $   500
From mainland China $   600
From other Asian countries $1,100
North America and Europe (including Russia) $1,400
Middle East (including Israel) $1,800
Africa $2,300
South America $3,000

   Fellows should purchase their airtickets, and we will reimburse up to the above amounts. The reimbursement procedure will be communicated to Fellows after they are selected.

   If you are interested in the Strings 2018 Fellowship, please apply to the Poster Session and Gong Show. The application deadline is on 31 March 2018, and we will announce the selection of Gong Show speakers in mid April
