Hello Farnaz,

All members of your team must be currently sutudents, so if your friend who graduated 2 years ago and isnt currently studying is not eligible to join the competition. As for yourself, master students are allowed to participate, as long as they started their master no longer than 18 months after graduating. So in your case, look at your graduation date, then look at the date when you started your masters, and if those two dates are less than 18 months apart from each other, then you are welcome to participate.

Hope this answers your question.
