Apply Now

Application forms for SITS 2020 will be available from this page on March 9, 2020. Review of applications will start immediately after and will continue until all places are filled.

There is no application deadline. We have rolling enrollment.

Applications will be processed in the order in which they are received until all places are filled.

Applications must be complete before they can be reviewed.

It is advisable to apply early, since spaces have filled very rapidly in the past.

Space is limited.

Most of the questions on the application form request information about you, your command of the language, your experience as a teacher and the level to which you have pursued your studies.

We want to know who is a teacher and who is a student. That is an important bit of information for us, and it makes a difference on what emphasis we give certain aspects of the Institute.

We also want to know the kind of school where you work, the technology that you have available, and your own level of computer literacy. Again, this is information that will help us plan the Institute better.

Your video-essay is a substantial part of the application, so please work on it carefully. We want to know what your command of Spanish is, as well as your technological skills.

Finally, your transcript is also substantive information that will help us decide on your application.

Please, be aware that acceptance to the Summer Institute does not constitute admission to the Graduate School. If you want to complete your MA with us, you need to first be accepted into the graduate school, click here for more information.

In brief, your application will not be either approved or rejected on the basis of your working at a bigger or smaller school or one that has better computer access than another.

However, that information is helpful for us in deciding how to organize our teaching material. On the other hand, your command of the language, the kind of support you get from your supervisors, and your grades will be considered closely when deciding on your application.

Follow the instructions below to complete your application:
Fill out and send this form by email or by regular mail. Once your application is completed and you are accepted to the program, the Bursar will send you an e-bill.
The calendar for the Summer 2020 is subject to adjustments.

Arrangements can be made for participants who cannot start on time due to an extended school year.
