Fellowship & Stipends

Watson Program

For encouraging the participation of Chinese students (including HK and Taiwan), We have established the Watson Program with over 70 Chinese universities and institutes. Briefly speaking, one registered PI or Postdoc could bring 2 free auditing students (invited speakers not included); one registered student could bring 1 free auditing student. These auditing students will have free pass to the meeting sessions, but need to take care of their accommodation by themselves. For more details, please click HERE! .

Fellowship for symposia and conferences

Conference participants (graduate students or post docs) whose abstracts are accepted for presentation may be eligible for fellowship for attending CSH Asia conferences and symposia. Fellowship decisions will be made by the organizers based on the merit of scientific quality. The winners will receive the fellowship in a value ranging from $100 to $500. The results will be announced during the conference and published at the website.

Congratulations to the following students! Their presentations (short talks or posters) are selected for a CSHA fellowship

Stipends for summer schools

Summer school applicants are invited to apply for partial stipends to offset tution, room and board costs. Funding may be earmarked for students originating from certain geographical regions. Interested applicants should prepare a written request for stipend support along with the other documents required for summer school application; these documents MUST be uploaded simultaneously to the CSH Asia server at the time of application [we cannot guarantee that stipend requests sent to CSH Asia separately will be included with the application].

Summer school stipend decisions will be communicated to successful applicants at the time of offer.
