Applications for summer 2019 are no longer being accepted. This year's Program Flyer is here.
Hit "refresh" to see if there are any updates on our selection process. Each update is tagged with the date and listed below.
2/18/19, 5pm CT: The application period has closed. As each application is processed we will email applicants a link to a shared folder to upload their resume and transcript. Each reference will also be contacted individually. We will have a week to finish collecting all application materials, so no worries. Have your transcript and resume handy and watch for an email upload invitation. And let your references know that they will have until next Monday, Feb 25, to submit their letters.
2/14/19: All those who applied by noon Central Time today have been processed, meaning an email has been sent to each applicant with a link for uploading their transcript and (optional) resume, and emails were sent to references to request their letters. I will attempt to do this daily now that we are so close to the application deadline. Remember, students must have their application form submitted by 5pm Central Time on Monday, February 18. They are then given a few days to upload their transcripts and (optional) resume. References are given until February 25 to submit their letters. All materials must be received for an application to be considered.
2/12/19: I went through applications and email again this morning, and we now have 17 project proposals! If I delete your folder before you are finished uploading items, please let me know using the email contact at the bottom of this page.
2/11/19: This morning I went through applications and email. If you completed an application as of this morning, you should have received a folder invite from me to upload your transcript and (optional) resume. References were also contacted today for applications received thus far. Also, we are now up to 16 project proposals for this summer!
2/5/19: Once or twice a week we catch up on applications received thus far. We send requests to references and create shared folders for applicants to upload their transcripts and (optional) resume. If you applied between 2/1/19 and 2/4/19, you and your references should have heard from us this morning. We previously did this on 1/23, 1/30, and 2/1. If you have any concerns, please send email to email@example.com. Please understand that we check that email every few days. If you have a more urgent question please use the contact information at the bottom of this page.
