The deadline to apply for winter break programs is quickly approaching (October 5th) so don’t delay. 

Pick up literature, talk to faculty, former program participants, and program officers to evaluate among the possibilities and decide the best fit for your academic career. Also find out how to apply for a CGE scholarship and learn how your financial aid can be used to cover a program’s cost.
