Application FAQ

What should I know about the application process?

The Global Leadership Adventures application process is not meant to exclude students from our program. Rather, it is a time when our staff can review each applicant’s motivations, expectations and character to see if they would be a good fit for our program. The application process allows us to make sure that the students’ motivations and expectations are aligned with what our programs offer.

The application includes:

  • $600 deposit, applicable towards the total tuition
  • $95 non-refundable application fee*
  • Several  brief essays
  • Self-evaluation
  • Background information about the student and their life experiences

Students are required to submit an application (online or printed) which includes a non-refundable $95 application fee* and a non-refundable  $600 deposit ($695 total). Your balance is due 45 days after the deposit.

In the event you are not accepted into the program, we will refund the $600 deposit immediately.

When will my application be reviewed?

Once the completed application is submitted, our staff will review it within two working days (Monday-Friday) and you will receive a reply via email.

What happens once I’m accepted?

Once accepted into a program, one of our coordinators will work with your family to make sure you have everything you need for the program and will also provide guidance on how you can obtain plane tickets, visas (if necessary), international cell phones and immunizations (if required).

Is there anything also I should know?

Please Note: There is a $25.00 fee for each Returned Check.

*The $95 application fee is standard from September 1 – April 15. The application fee increases to $145 during the Rolling Admission period, from April 16 – End of Season.
