Kindly be informed that individuals who have academic advisors within their respective disciplines should first consult with their advisors to ascertain if they are eligible to participate in the program. If both the individual and their advisor desire to participate, we will gladly allow them to enroll in the program jointly.

Moreover, the APAG committee has limited expertise and time to assist students on various topics. As a result, we select approximately three applicants that we believe we can competently handle. Please note that if your application is not chosen, it is not due to its quality but rather our restricted capacity.
