Early application deadline: November 6, 2022
Final application deadline: January 6, 2022
Next summer, Los Alamos National Laboratory will be hosting the twenty-fourth edition of the Los Alamos Dynamics Summer School (LADSS). We have attached a PDF flyer that provides information about the summer school and links to more information are available at https://ladss.lanl.gov [ladss.lanl.gov], including instructions on how to apply. 
We are seeking students with academic focuses in engineering (including mechanical, electrical, aerospace, and civil), as well as those in computer science and applied math. Please pass this solicitation on to prospective students and directly encourage those who you feel are well-suited for the program to apply. Offer letters will be given to accepted applicants on a rolling basis throughout the early application period, so we encourage students to apply early in order to have the greatest chance of securing a position in the program. All applications submitted November 6, 2022 – January 6, 2023, will be reviewed after the application period closes.
The primary goal of LADSS is to motivate U.S. citizens to attend graduate school. Therefore, the students you solicit need to be U.S. citizens, and they should be of sufficient academic standing to be credible candidates for graduate school. As a reference point, the 400+ students that have taken part in the first twenty-three schools had undergraduate GPAs ranging from 3.0 – 4.0, with a mean undergraduate GPA of approximately 3.8.
Feedback shows that most applicants are students that faculty members or former program participants have talked to individually regarding the summer school, so we appreciate you taking the time to talk with some of your top students about the program!
Also, please pass this solicitation on to other faculty that may have students who are interested in this educational/work opportunity. If you have any questions about the summer school, please contact us at ladss@lanl.gov and we will be happy to answer them. Thanks for your help recruiting students for the Los Alamos Dynamics Summer School! 2023_Los_Alamos_Dynamics_Summer_School_Flyer
