Application Dates and Procedures for the 2005 Summer Work Study Program

Step 1:
Print and complete the SWP Application Form (download a PDF of the form here). The completed form has to be turned in to the Program by Friday, October 15, 2004.

Put a hard copy of the form into the SWP Mail Box in the German Department Lounge (207 East Pyne Building). Please note that you must attach a photograph of yourself to the application.

Step 2:
Print a copy of the SWP Language Reference Form (download a PDF of the form here). The form is to be completed by your German language professor or instructor, or by another instructor who is familiar with your German language competence. Ask your professor or instructor to send the form to the SWP office by Monday, November 1, 2004.

Step 3:
When you hand in your SWP Application Form, sign up for an interview. Sign-up sheets will be posted outside the SWP office (204 East Pyne Building). Your 20-minute German-language interview will take place in the week of November 1, 2004 (i.e. right after the Fall Recess).

Step 4:
If you are admitted into the Program, you will be notified by mid-November. Admission into the SWP means that we agree to place you in an internship for the summer of 2005. Admission does not mean that a suitable position is guaranteed. We do our best, however, to place all qualified applicants in appropriate jobs.

**Once you have confirmed your acceptance of the admission, you are committed to participating in the program.**

Immediately apply for a passport, if you do not yet have one.

Step 5:
You will receive your job assignment by late February, 2005. Make your travel arrangements as early as possible after you find out about the precise dates of your internship.
