London International Youth Science Forum Award

Dr. Chris Kozak, Coordinator London International Youth Science Forum (LIYSF) Award.

The 2022 London International Youth Science Forum takes place this upcoming summer from July 27 to August 10, 2022 in London England.

About 300 top young science students (aged 16 to 21 years old) from 50 or more countries around the world attend the Forum which consists of some very special lectures from eminent scientists, visits to famous places like Oxford and Cambridge, visits to museums, research and industrial laboratories, group discussions, and a full social schedule. No time to be bored!

Students must be Bona Fide first-year MUN science students from the St. John’s campus. They may be taking some second-year courses if they have received AP or IB credits. Applicants must have taken no less than 5 courses in each of the Fall 2021 and Winter 2022 semesters to be considered for the award.

A shortlist of up to a dozen students will be given a brief informal interview by the LIYSF Committee consisting of 3 or 4 MUN Professors from which one student will be chosen for the award. The main criterion for the award is overall academic performance, especially in science and math courses taken in the Fall 2021 and Winter 2022 semesters. Generally, the winner has a cumulative average in the range of 85 to 90%.

The Winner is asked to submit a one-to-two page report shortly after their return on their impressions about the Forum and how they feel they benefited from attending it. They are expected to return their tickets stubs to the Chemistry Department for bookkeeping purposes. The winner may also be asked to help with Orientation in Fall 2022 and with other related events such as promoting LIYSF to future students.

Application forms are available through the link here or from the Chemistry Department General Office CSF2211. Return completed forms to Chris Davis, Chemistry Undergraduate Secretary.

Tentative Schedule of Events

Application forms are due Thursday, April 7, 2022 in the Chemistry General Office CSF2211.
