Q. When is the application deadline?
A. Deadline: Applications are due by March 1. Applications will be reviewed by program leadership, and the participants will be chosen and notified by April 1st.
Applications are currently closed for the 2013 program.
Q. Who is eligible to apply?
A. Servicio en las Américas is available to admitted first-year students who are committed to attending DePauw University. All applicants must have at least three years of high school Spanish. Preference will be given to students who are the first in their families to attend college and to those who have not yet traveled outside of the United States.
Q. How much will this cost me?
A. There is no cost to participate in Servicio en las Américas, thanks to a generous gift from alumnus Steve Trulaske. While on the DePauw campus, program participants will reside in University residence halls and meals will be complimentary. The international flight and all transportation associated with the program, on-site housing, and meals while abroad are also provided at no cost to the student. Personal expenses, both on campus and abroad (including initial travel to the DePauw campus and your return home), are the responsibility of the student.
Q. What is the process if I decide to withdraw?
A. Applicants will be notified by April 1st if they are accepted, on a waiting list, or not accepted. The waiting list will be contacted on a rolling basis up until May 1st. This is the preferred withdraw deadline for accepted participants; this is also the same day deposits are due to DePauw. If you choose to withdraw, please write email@example.com.
Late Withdrawal: Should you choose to withdraw from the program after May 7th, you will be billed a $200 withdrawal fee to cover administrative costs.
