Student Funding

YCEI supports student efforts to create their own projects or events, and to participate in those of others. To apply for student support, please follow the Student Funding Application link at left.

Funding is limited for the 2015-16 Academic Year, but innovative proposals for student research, especially those leveraged with other funding sources, will be considered. Proposals will be evaluated on a rolling monthly basis: the deadline for proposals to be considered each month will be the 15th of the month, with decisions announced by the end of the month.
