Apply Online

When you're ready, complete the online application. The first portion of the application must be completed in one session, but you may upload your essay and resume at a later time.

Application Instructions

To apply for an Education Abroad program, complete the following steps.

Step One:

Start the online application. The first portion of the online application must be completed in one session. You will be charged a $50 application fee for each academic term you apply for. The fee will be charged automatically when you submit your application.

Each program requires a separate application and essay. 

Step Two:

Rank your programs based on your preference.

  • Global Enrichment short-term programs: rank up to two programs per application cycle.
  • Global Immersion semester or summer programs: rank up to five programs for consideration. We encourage you to select multiple programs, as space at some partner schools is very limited.

Step Three:

After completing the previous section, you will be assigned an application checklist of required application materials (essay/statement of interest and resume). All required items must be uploaded by the application deadline.

Your application will be considered complete after receiving your essay & resume, though you may complete as many of the checklist items as are applicable to you (scholarship essays, for example). Please note that scholarships are reviewed on the same cycle as the program application, so it is in your best interest to complete your scholarship essay at the same time as the program application!

Step Four:

Upload an essay for each program to your application checklist. The essay questions are as follows:

Graduate Global Enrichment short-term programs:

Write a statement of interest of one page, double spaced, that explains why you are interested in participating on this program (e.g., impact on your personal, professional, or academic goals, seeking knowledge of the country or region, interest in subject, desire to work on a multicultural team, etc.)

Global Immersion semester or summer programs:

Write an essay of no more than two pages, double spaced, that answers the following questions:

  • Describe the research you conducted when selecting this program. How will it advance your academic, professional, and personal goals? (If you applied to more than one Global Immersion program, be sure to specifically address each of them.)
  • Participation in a semester or summer program will require a great degree of flexibility, independence, and planning on your part. Describe a time when you demonstrated these qualities to reach a goal.

Your application will be considered complete after receiving your essay & resume, though you may complete as many of the checklist items as are applicable to you (scholarship essays, for example). Please note that scholarships are reviewed on the same cycle as the program application, so it is in your best interest to complete your scholarship essay at the same time as the program application!
