About CSST

The Cross-disciplinary Scholars in Science and Technology (CSST) program seeks to strengthen international collaboration by inviting highly accomplished students to study and engage in research at UCLA. The students are supported by institutional agreements with universities abroad and by scholarships from their home institutions. The CSST initiative involves many different academic departments, research centers, and administrative units across campus, including the Office of Academic Program Development, the International Institute, and the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI.) The CSST program emphasizes cross-disciplinary training and research.
