Dear Academy candidates, and Academy supporters,
In the last few days, the decision was made that the 8th Academy should be postponed until further notice. We have watched with increasing concern the Covid-19 developments over the last month; the last week especially, international and domestic developments have only convinced us that we need to play it safe. Our decision comes from the high standards we set for ourselves to protect the health and safety of the Fellows, and to provide the high quality education.
Rescinding this callout is an unpleasant affair – to the candidates, we have to apologize for giving you the hope that you could participate in this Academy cohort. To our supporters, we have to ask you for another favour: to rescind the callout on your network. It is however, we believe, the lesser of two evils – it is important to pass this message along as soon as possible, to prevent further miscommunication.
Please stay connected to us, to remain informed about the latest Academy news. We will let you know, as soon as we can, when the next Academy will start. We thank you for your understanding, and wish you and your loved ones good health.
