    is the offer still valid? and what are the requirements beside having a Bachelor`s degree in physics or geology? would love to apply but still not quite sure whether i qualify. currently i have to do my research paper in geology - this will take up to a month - but after that i have time to look into some interesting programs and i find yours offers great opportunities for personal and professional development
