Applying Is Easy

GIV applications are easy and you’ll just need to fill out a couple simple online forms, which include:

  • Basic student information (name, age, email address, school, etc)
  • Choosing which topics/strands interest you and a few short essays that express your interest.
  • Recommendations from teachers/adults – these aren’t formal letters but rather a quick online form that you send directly to their email.
