The application process consists of the following steps:
All applicants must submit BOTH required documents (resume and essay) before being considered eligible for admissions review. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
All completed applications will undergo an initial review by the admissions committee, who will determine which applicants will be offered an interview.
All applicants who reach the interview stage will be given several potential interview dates and times, as well as an in-person or phone interview option.
A background check will be conducted on each selected candidate before acceptance to the program. Selected candidates will be required to submit two professional reference letters.
Notification of Acceptance
Due to the high volume of applications, only accepted applicants and those who
make it to the interview stage will be informed of the admission committee’s
decision. At this stage, accepted applicants will be offered a position for the
summer and will begin to coordinate scheduling and preparation materials.
Please note that admission to the summer internship program is competitive.
The hands-on experience that we offer draws high levels of interest, and as
much as we would like to, we simply cannot accommodate every applicant.
All applications are given equal rigor in the review process and are subject to the
same standards of admission.
