Summer Applications

Applications Open!

GIV’s summer 2023 Institutes will be in-person on college campuses all across the state! The application process is super straightforward. Here’s what you’ll be asked to do once you click that apply button:

  • Create a SurveyMonkey account, if you haven’t already
  • Fill out some basic contact information and select the Institute(s) you’re applying for
  • Answer a few essay questions that will help GIV get to know you
  • Ask two teachers/adults for recommendations: all you have to do is enter their email addresses and let them know you’ve requested a recommendation – GIV will take care of the rest
  • Hit submit!

The deadline is March 31st. Once applications have closed, we’ll reach out to you via email within a couple of weeks to let you know your admission status.

The cost of the summer Institutes uses a sliding scale tuition model, and depends entirely on what your family can afford. For more info, you can check out our summer tuition page!
