The total enrollment for the program is limited to 10-12 students. SIUE ensures a low student/faculty ratio in order to enhance the educational experience and safety of participating students. Since there will only be one accompanying SIUE faculty member with this program, very limited space is available.
The deadline for applications is December 15, 2009. In the event that the program fills up prior to the deadline, applications will be accepted and put on a waiting list in the order submitted. Late applications will be accepted until February 15, 2010 if the program has not filled up.
We are now accepting applications for the 2010 program.
