Application NOTES and form

This year, we will first recruit from our four partener schools per our written propsal for the GenCyber grant. If we cannot recruit enough students from these four partener schools, we will select students from the online applicants. We expect to accept online applicants into this program. Decisions on selecting students will be made in early May 2022. Female and minotiry students are encouraged and given a higher priority into this summer camp per the guideline of the GenCyber program.

Please note:

  1. We do NOT offer transportation for students. Selected students have to take care of the travel to and from our site themselves. They shall arrive at our site by 9:00AM in the morning and be picked up at 4:30PM in the afternoon during the 5-day program.
  2. As of Feb 28, 2022, UMass Lowell is a mask-optional campus. The GenCyber camp will follow the masking guidelines of the UMass Lowell camps. Unless there is any change in campus policy, the GenCyber camp will be mask-optional.
