These sessions are recommended as we expect the full research staff to be in the field during this time. Session schedules, possibly at a slight additional cost, may be negotiated in order to accommodate the needs of volunteers.

Please contact William Honeychurch if you have additional questions about summer scheduling.

If you are not accepted, your deposit will be refunded. If you are accepted and you withdraw 60 days before the beginning of the first session, 50% of your deposit will be refunded. If you withdraw 60 days or less after the beginning of the first session, no refund will be made. However, the deposit remains tax-deductible.
