IUHPFL is a selective program with an in-depth application process. Students must first register for the program (and pay a $25 registration fee) by November 15th. Students who meet all eligibility criteria will be invited to complete the full application, which includes: student essay questions, writing sample in target language, official school transcript, parental assessment, two academic appraisals, and one non-academic appraisal. The full application is due in early December. Some students may be asked to complete an in-person interview in February.
The $25 registration fee has been waived for Summer 2023.
Processing of passports is taking several months, so interested students should apply for or renew their passports as soon as possible.
Program applicants (and instructors) will need to be fully vaccinated against the coronavirus due to specific host country and program requirements, as well as host family arrangements at each site, or have an approved exemption.
