Especially those who can apply as "Experimenters," bringing their own
specimens, might gain admission. There may be slots for "Observers."
Also very few Latin Americans have applied to take advantage of the
scoholarships from the IUCr and USNCCr.
The deadline is the 8AM Monday the 6th here on Long Island.
Apply early and often.
