September 28th, 2011 Comments off

With the selection process now complete, 25 lucky applicants from ten countries have been informed of their places on the course. These participants can look forward to an intensive but rewarding six weeks, during which we will visit various field sites in Xishuangbanna, including Bulong Nature Research, a beautiful forest on the Myan Mar border, where the participants will conduct their independent research projects. This year we received over 100 applications, so unfortunately that means for every applicant we accepted we had to turn three away. We hope, of course, that as our funding situation becomes more secure we can offer more courses each year including in other countries.
