Nobel Week 2019 in Stockholm

05 Dec 2019

Date: December 5-10, 2019
Eligibility: Academy members aged 16 or above
Venue: Stockholm University

Academy for the Talented collaborates with the National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS), a distinguished academic honour society co-founded by Mr. Claes Nobel, a senior member of the Noble Prize family to offer the Noble week for our members. The Nobel Week allows participants to meet and have a dialogue with the Nobel laureates. Last year, two Academy members were offered scholarships to attend the Nobel Week 2018. This year, we will select four members to attend the Nobel Week.

Selection Criteria 
Candidates will be evaluated base on member's interview performance, latest academic results and personal statement.

Scholarships
There are two scholarships quotas jointly offer the Academy for the Talented and NSHSS to support your travel up to USD $1500 which cover the registration fee, airfare and accommodation.  Scholarship awardees will be responsible for your own excursions, transportations, meals (USD$60 per day), travel visa (if needed), and any other miscellaneous costs. 

Application
Please apply by September 20, 2019 23:59 HKT  (ONLY if you are available to attend the entire Nobel Week) by completing the form via link. For the programme itinerary, please refer to the NSHSS official website. Students who need visa for travelling to Sweden, please check the visa application procedure in advance.

Your application details will be reviewed by the Academy for the Talented Committee. Shortlisted applicants will be invited for an interview, which will be conducted through Skype in late September 2019.  The Academy for the Talented can provide a letter proof should you require it for your leave approval from your school.

Accommodation                                                                                                   Generator (students who are under 18 cannot stay in any shared rooms, however they can stay in private rooms. If you're between 16-18 and want to stay in a private room alone, you'll need written consent from your parent or guardian.)

 

“How exciting to be surrounded by such brilliant minds! People who have made indispensable contributions within their communities. It has been one of the most memorable experiences of my life.”
