• Application Information

  • To apply you will need to have the following materials ready before filling out the online application:

    1. A recent résumé or CV
    2. An academic or professional writing sample OR portfolio
    3. A brief essay for your first-choice IFP country
    4. A brief essay for your second-choice IFP country

    Without these document files available and ready for upload, you will not be able to complete the application process.

    The writing sample can be a professional/academic paper (10-15 pages in length) showcasing your writing ability OR a portfolio (media, design, or art) highlighting your recent work in relation to the project of your first and/or second choice IFP sites.

    The brief essays (approximately 250-500 words) should explain:

    1. Your reasons for wanting to participate in that particular IFP site — what relevant experience or coursework draws you to spend the summer in that country?
    2. What prior experiences (research, internships, community service, travel, extracurricular activities, etc.) have you had that make you a strong candidate?
    3. What do you expect to gain from the experience, and how does the IFP fit into your study plans and goals?
