    11.08.15 — NCCR-Robotics NCCR Robotics offers financial assistance to women Master’s students studying in a robotics related field wishing to complete a 3-6 month internship at an NCCR Robotics laboratory. Three Master’s internships will be given of a value of up to 2000 CHF per month to cover travel and living expenses. In order to apply for an internship students must first contact an NCCR professor to discuss which potential projects may be available. A full list of NCCR Robotics professors can be found on the people page of the NCCR Robotics website. Once professorial support has been obtained the student should submit a complete application, comprising: The application should contain the following: 1. A PDF document containing a brief description (maximum 1 page including references, font size 12) of the project as agreed between the hosting professor and the student. 2. A CV of the student candidate. 3. One letter of recommendation. 4. A letter from the host laboratory. All items should be submitted in English. Applications should be sent by email to scholarship-nccr-robotics@groupes.epfl.ch with the title “master internship application”. The submission deadline is October 10th 2015. Notifications of acceptance/rejection will be sent out by the end of 2015. Read the whole article
