How to apply to CERN-HSF

  1. Take a look at the list of projects participating for this year.
    • There you will find a list of proposals for each project, their descriptions and the contact information of their mentors.
    • There is also a list with all the project proposals sorted in alphabetical order.

  2. Once you have chosen one or more proposals that you like, please contact the corresponding mentors and they will guide you through the next steps.

  3. Mentors will typically ask you to complete a technical test to evaluate if you have the skills required for the project.
    • Please note that the vast majority of our GSoC projects do not require any physics knowledge; in case of doubt, ask the mentors.
    • If you do well in the tests, mentors will usually ask you to write a description for your proposal and help you with the submission.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have further questions.
