How to Apply

Each program has its own application process. The two short courses have a rolling registration, meaning anyone can join before the deadline. The intensive programs each have their own competitive application process.

If you are applying for a scholarship for one of the intensive programs, please note that the scholarship application is independent from the program application. Scholarships applications have an earlier deadline. Read more about how to apply for a scholarship here.
