Due to ongoing containment and health recommendations in response to COVID-19, we will be suspending the International Summer Research Program this year. While we hope that the situation is better by this summer, due to the suspension of visa services at U.S. embassies and consulates we cannot say for certain that it will improve and whether students will be able to get visas in time. Therefore, we decided to officially suspend ISRP for this year so that students can make other plans for the summer. This was a very difficult decision for us to make but given that the situation is rapidly evolving we wanted to make a decision before students make financial commitments. We hope that we will be able to welcome students to UC San Diego in the future and hope that you, your families, classmates and friends remain healthy and safe during this time.
