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
  • non-refundable application fee (amount varies by season)
  • 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 application fee and a non-refundable $600 deposit ($700 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 is the deadline to apply?

The application deadline for summer programs is May 15th.

Program spaces are available on a first come, first served basis. In order to hold your space on a travel program, we require the non-refundable $600 deposit and the application fee.

As long as there is space available, we will hold your spot in the program of your choice with the payment. Typically, most summer travel programs fill in March.

After May 15th, we will no longer be able to accept applications for the upcoming summer. After this date, you’ll need to get in touch with us to see if any spaces are available for application on a case-by-case basis.

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.
