Students who have completed the language sequence (101-102-1027-107 or 108) are encouraged to apply.  Applicants will need a letter of intent in Italian, the approval of the instructor of their latest Italian language course, and the availability for an interview.

Application Process

Applications for the Summer Intensive Program in Pisa must be completed in the Global Programs System (GPS) by the final deadline of Sunday, January 24th, 2021.
Interviews will be scheduled shortly after the deadline. Acceptance is contingent upon the approval of the student's most recent instructor of the language course.
Letter of intent and unofficial transcripts must be submitted via email to Leslie Savadge, Program Coordinator.

*After you have completed your application, through GPS, and have hand-delivered your documents to Leslie Savadge (304 East Pyne), you will be contacted to schedule an interview.

The selection of participants will be announced in early February. Those selected must attend a pre-departure meeting, where they will be provided with information to prepare for the program.

Program Fee

The fee per student includes the course, accommodations, meals, breaks, and cultural activities.
*Students are responsible for the cost of airfare (round-trip travel), and any personal expenses.

Students on financial aid may apply to the Dean's Fund for Study Abroad to help cover costs. They may also request assistance from Financial Aid to cover a part of the program budget that may remain unmet.
*Application deadlines for these funding sources may be earlier than departmental decisions on admission.
