Understandably, it's already quite competitive, and this will only make it more so. Oh well. Discovery Institute's Center for Science & Culture announced today that we will be extending the deadline for applications for this year's two intensive nine-day seminars on science, society and intelligent design for college and graduate students. The official deadline fell yesterday, April 15, but applications will still be accepted through Monday, April 22.

The seminars will run concurrently, July 12-20, 2013. The first study track, the CSC Seminar on Intelligent Design in the Natural Sciences, will prepare students to make research contributions advancing the growing science of intelligent design (ID). The second study track, the C.S. Lewis Fellows Program on Science and Society, will explore the growing impact of science on politics, economics, social policy, bioethics, theology, and the arts.

Yes, amazingly it's FREE, including travel, food and lodging.

Students will be college juniors or seniors or already in graduate school. Past grads have come from a number of prestigious universities such as Cambridge University, England; University of Turin, Italy; National University, Argentina; St. Petersburg State University, Russia; and American schools including Duke, UC Berkeley, and the University of Washington.

In past years, seminar faculty have included leading scientists and scholars in the intelligent design movement such as Stephen Meyer, Michael Behe, Jonathan Wells, Douglas Axe, John West, William Dembski, Michael Denton, Richard Sternberg, Ann Gauger, and Scott Minnich.
