    This is the tipping point. If funding for international students was available it would be a game changer. Both from the students stand point of view and the ones offering the electives.

    I just found out that at my university, undergraduate international students interested in basic research in Neurology do get paid for summer internships provided they have social security numbers with authorization to work. They can apply for one after ten days of stay in the US. I think MIT does as well, but I’ll have to check up on that.

    One issue i could see is that there would be to many applicants for the funding so it would be a harder process of filtering, this would also drive competition. But i guess competition is never really a bad thing.

    Absolutely, that would be fierce competition. Well, gotta beat the odds. :)
