  • Can ‘I’ apply?

  • What is the participation fee?

    The participation fee for the coming year is still not announced.

  • Why do I have to pay a participation fee?

    STeLA is a non-profit organization, so although we don’t make any profit we need some revenues to be able to organize the Forum. We try to get most of the revenues from sponsors, and although we have a great list of sponsors it is not always enough for us to be able to provide the best that is possible for our participants. Which is why a participation fee is required from participants and staff as well.

  • Are there any scholarships?

    STeLA itself doesn’t have any scholarships. However, we encourage you to get in contact with people in your own universities for the possibility of getting a scholarship to join STeLA.

  • When does the forum take place?

    We try to pick the dates most suitable for our participants and staff who come from all over the world which is why it is held in the summer. This year the Forum will take place from 31st July to 9th August.

  • Where does the forum take place this year?

    STeLA is held in a different country each year. The 2019 host country will be announced soon.

  • Can I get credits?

    You can not get credits from STeLA itself. However, some universities may give credits for joining the forum, so we encourage you to get in touch with the people in charge in your own universities.
