We will begin accepting applications January 1, 2019 through Academic Jobs Online (available January 1). We will process applications until our closing date of April 1, 2019; note earlier applications are encouraged. Submitting your materials as soon as possible in January is ideal.
Once accepted, you will receive a link with payment information.
The program charge in 2019 is $1,800 which includes advance preparation, course materials, course instruction, access to the library and internet services, opening reception, closing banquet, daily morning and afternoon coffee breaks, and a weekend group activity. Housing is billed separately and is described below.
Housing and meals
Double occupancy housing in townhouse apartments at a rate of ~$60/night (2019 updates to pricing are pending, and will be listed very soon, with only slight changes anticipated).
Participants will typically book housing for 13 nights (arrive Sunday, the day before the first day of the course; depart Saturday, the day following the last day of the course), thus the total charge is about $800.
Single rooms are available for an additional $30/night, thus at a rate of $90/night.
Meal cards are available for purchase, providing access to dining halls near the townhouse apartments, at a rate of about ~$40/day (2019 updates to pricing are pending, and will be listed very soon, with only slight changes anticipated). Participants will typically buy a meal card for the duration of the institute, thus 13 days for a total of about $520.
If you are accepted to the Institute, further registration information will be forthcoming and you will be provided with links to complete an online reservation for housing at that time. For more information, see On-Campus Housing Accommodations on the Campus Life website.
