Official announcement for Summer Program and new candidate



We have unfortunately decided to cancel hosting the 2020 Summer Program and the Manai Award due to the severe impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We were forced to make this unfortunate decision due to the fact that the impact and effect of the virus is heavily unpredictable, threatening our planning and executing of an international program like ours. We hope you can understand this decision to prioritize the health and wellbeing of those involved in the Programs. 

We will however, continue to conduct other lectures and presentation sessions, outside of the Seasonal Programs. Please check our website for more details.

On behalf of all of us in Manai Institute, we wish you continued good health, safety and well-being in this challenging time.
