The initial bid deadline is September 25th. We will then review bids and will confirm your bid or waitlist status by September 28th (email firstname.lastname@example.org after you submit a bid if you’re an international / east coast team and need to know earlier). Only 32 teams will receive bids. We reserve the right to give out bids on a priority basis, based on team location (aiming for diversity), team mission statement and projected team competitiveness. Bid fee is $600.
