Please review the application prompts (PDF) attached, including the short answer questions, essay, and homestay letter, and teacher reference. We encourage you to save your work in an MS Word document, and copy and paste your text into your application in one sitting. We waive the essay and teacher reference for students not applying for a scholarship; type “waived” into the essay fields on the application to bypass the essay section. (Leadership Institute applicants are required to complete a total of four essays.)
If you’re applying for a scholarship, you will be asked to enter the email address of an adult teacher, mentor, or coach to complete a letter of recommendation. Your reference writer will receive a reference web form via email.
