The application process asks applicants to input identifying information into a form and upload documents for review. To submit your application for the SEAL program, please have the following available to upload:
- Curriculum Vitae/Résumé: Applicants are prompted to either upload their CV or resume (.doc, .pdf).
- A 250 - 500 words Personal Statement explaining why you would like to be considered for the SEAL program. Your statement should include a brief description of your background, your area of professional interest, how this course will impact your career and the community which you serve.
- Letter of Recommendation: a letter of recommendation from a department/division head/director/chair or supervisor. The letter should address your suitability for the program and support your attendance at the workshops.
Many applicants find the process easier to complete on a desktop or laptop computer due to the length of the required personal statement and the required document upload.
