This form is an application to join Chennai Challenge's 2018 team. It will take between 15 - 30 minutes to complete this form.

Dates for the project are to be confirmed, but it will run for approximately 2-3 weeks in (or around) August 2018. Provisionally 11th h - 31st August (subject to change).You must be available to travel to India during this time.

The Senior Project Leader for the 2018 Project will make decisions on who will be selected based on your answers from the section "Application", and the responses of your references. DBS checks will be made after acceptance onto the team.

Please note that receipt of an application form does not guarantee a place on the team. Places are not offered on a first come first served basis, however we reserve the right to close applications early if we have filled the team before 30th January. We therefore advise applying as soon as you can.

Communication with the team will primarily be via email. You will need to provide a current email address that you regularly check. If you are unable to use email for any reason please advise us of this in the Additional Information section of this form.
