Applying to EITM 2024

The EITM Institute will select participants through a competitive process.

Application Details
  • Application deadline is Midnight, Eastern Standard Time, Friday, March 8, 2024. 
  • Applicants will be notified of decisions by late March. 
  • Please combine the statement of interest, writing sample and CV into one single PDF file. Save your file using your last name and First initial (i.e., bergeron_b.pdf).

A complete application consists of the following four components:

  1. Brief statement of interest and purpose in applying for the summer program, along with a short description of your ongoing research and how EITM could benefit it (1-4 pages).
  2. Writing Sample (dissertation chapter, conference or class paper, etc.)
  3. ​Curriculum Vitae with name and contact information, current location and position. If you are a student, the CV should indicate your current status in graduate school (e.g., whether you’ve passed exams and defended a dissertation proposal).
  4. ​Two letters of recommendation. Please write the name and email of those writing letters of recommendation, ask them to please send the letters of recommendation to by Friday March 8. 

We intend to accept about 24 participants — mostly advanced graduate students who are past their general exams, preferably with a completed dissertation prospectus or plan but not yet at the writing-up stage. We will also accept some junior faculty, preferably at a stage where they are wishing to add research to a defended dissertation before publication, or embarking on a second project. Applicants will be notified of our acceptance decisions (via e-mail).

Tuition and full financial support (including a stipend for round-trip airfare and dormitory housing, as necessary, plus a modest allowance for meals and incidentals) are provided for U.S. participants and for foreign students studying at U.S. institutions. A substantial portion of international participants’ expenses will also be covered. Please note that in order to receive program support, EITM Institute participants will need to be in residence for the duration of the program.
