We are seeking participants who are mature, tenacious, curious, collaborative, open, idealistic, and ready to get their hands dirty literally and figuratively.
The application process has three steps.
Phase 1: Preliminary Application - Deadline: November 15, 2022
Completing this short form is the first step in the application process. Please tell us about your background and interest in our program. If you have any questions or would like a Word/PDF version of this application, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Phase 2: Full Written Application - Deadline: within 2 weeks of being invited to complete the Phase 2 application
After reviewing your Phase 1 application, we will invite you to complete Phase 2 if it seems that you would be a good fit for the program. The Phase 2 application is more extensive than Phase 1 and will include longer essay questions. Your Phase 2 application will be due within 2 weeks of your invitation to complete it.
Phase 3: Interview & References
Once you have submitted Phase 2 of the application, you will be invited to participate in an interview with members of our Admissions Circle, which includes faculty and alumni of earlier programs. Interviews typically last about 45 minutes and can take place in person or via Zoom as circumstances allow. Applicants who are able to visit us in Viroqua are encouraged to do so! During this phase we will also contact personal references submitted as part of Phase 2.
