Apply for International Service Teams
Application & Selection Process
Applications for students wanting to serve during the Summer of 2020 will be available this fall.
In addition to completing the application, students must submit a resume, a transcript, and one reference. After applications are submitted, applicants will go through an individual interview process with the program's student coordinators. Applicants will be notified of whether or not they have been accepted into the program around mid-November.
Participants will complete LEAD 489, a three-credit-hour course offered through the Staley School of Leadership Studies. The course is only available to International Service Team members and is specifically designed to prepare students for a summer of service abroad. Using a service-learning model, the International Service Teams course provides students with a background in international service, cross-cultural communication, civic engagement, leadership skills, and team dynamics. Applicants do not need to enroll in the course before official acceptance into the program.
Program Opportunity Fund
The Staley School Ambassadors provide financial assistance through the Program Opportunity Fund to students who have expressed the desire to participate in one of the Staley School of Leadership Studies programs. This is an option for those students who may not have the necessary funds to participate in International Service Teams.
To receive assistance from the Program Opportunity Fund please complete the application. Applications can be submitted through email or applications can be dropped off in Room 257 of the Leadership Studies Building.
