Apply for a Summer Scholarship or Assistantship.

The summer lottery deadline is February 11. To give a greater number of people a chance to enroll in the most popular classes, applications received by 5:00 PM on February 11 will be placed in a lottery and treated equally regardless of when they were received. (For example, if a workshop has 12 spaces and we receive 15 applications by February 11, we will take all 15 names and randomly select 12 of them.) After February 11, applications will be processed on a first-come/first-served basis. Apply to the Lottery
