Call for physics student volunteer to represent Canada at May International event in Paris (via Canadian Association of Physicists)

International Day of Light 2018
ATTN: Physics Students at a Canadian University
The International Association of Physics Students (IAPS) has provided us with a unique opportunity to send a volunteer to the UNESCO-sponsored International Day of Light (IDL) celebration in Paris, France on May 16, 2018. The volunteer will help with exhibits and educational activities throughout the day. More information about the day can be found at Accommodations for the delegate on the nights of May 15 and 16 will be covered as well as travel to and from Paris.
The CAP is accepting applications from students pursuing a Bachelor’s, Masters, or PhD degree in physics at an eligible Canadian university. The applicant should be comfortable with talking, in English, about the concepts of light with a general audience. Preference will be given to students who have taken a 2nd year or higher level optics course (please comment on this in your covering letter which will accompany your application). More information about eligibility and requested materials can be found in the attached application form.
Please note that the IAPS is aiming to have diverse representation in this international group of volunteers and so we encourage all interested physics students who meet the eligibility requirements to apply.
The application deadline is Wednesday, February 14th at 5:00pm CST. No late applications will be accepted.

Please submit applications by e-mail to Chris Pugh at ac.unodnarbnull@chgup.
