To apply, students must meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • Applicants must be enrolled at the Washington Square or Brooklyn Campus for the entire academic year in which the program is offered.
  • Applicants must confirm their availability during the required program dates posted on the program website during the application period.

Selection Process

Each candidate is reviewed carefully by the selection committee. Participants are selected based on the quality of their whole application, but particular attention is paid to essay responses. The most competitive applications will demonstrate commitment to a community, a project idea aligned with this commitment and their studies and a desire to advance their existing leadership skills. Admitted students will be notified by Monday, August 17th, 2020.
