PROGRAM SUMMARY TABLE

We strongly recommend that students apply for more than one program. All programs are competitive and there is no way to predict how many applications we will get for a particular program in a given semester. Students who apply to only one site are very likely to be disappointed and will be left with no backup options if they are not accepted to their first-choice program.

FAC = a program where an HWS or other faculty member accompanies the group and leads the program
