Summer Length of Stay

The Aspen Center for Physics requires that participants stay at the Center for a minimum of two full working weeks, with stays of three and four weeks encouraged and stays of five weeks possible. A small and strictly limited number of one week stays are allowed each summer to enable attendance by physicists who are not able to participate for two weeks or longer because of professional or personal commitments such as laboratory management or childcare/eldercare arrangements.

You may apply for either a one week stay or a stay of two weeks or more.


ONE-WEEK APPLICANTS

If you apply to our summer program for one week only, your application will only be considered for a one week stay. There will be a strictly limited number of one week stays accepted by the admissions committee. If you apply for and are accepted for two or more weeks, you will not be able to reduce your stay to one week after the application deadline has passed.

Applicants who request a one week stay may provide any information in the comments that they would like the admissions committee to take into consideration.


TWO OR MORE WEEKS

If you apply to our summer program for two or more weeks and are accepted, you can rest assured that you will be accepted for a minimum of two weeks.

Those applying for stays of two or more weeks should be able to commit to spending those full working weeks at the Center.

Those applying for two or more weeks should commit to spending the full working weeks at the Center. Late arrival/early departure, except due to circumstances beyond your control, will lead to a loss of the entire NSF housing subsidy.
