How to Apply

Interested candidates must complete an application, after which eligibility will be verified. Due to COVID-19 precautions, the class size will be limited to 12 participants for each session. There are no fees to participate in the program.


Please note: Candidates for the program will be selected by an independent selection committee. A submitted application does not guarantee your participation in the program. The deadline has passed to submit applications for the spring term. To be considered for the upcoming session, applications must be submitted by December 15, 2021. 


Apply online using the Citizen Academy Application.
