Before completing the SStS 2019 application, please consider that involvement in these courses is a significant commitment. Each experience uniquely focuses on learning through immersion in a distinctive culture. Living and working shoulder-to-shoulder with your group and hosts means being present, inclusive, appreciative, and persistent. Our courses are challenging. Consequently, applicants need to be physically and emotionally fit as well as eager to learn.
U.S. courses- applicants must currently be in 8th grade through 12th grade.
International courses- applicants must currently be in 9th grade through 12th grade.
Advanced course- applicants must currently be in 11th or 12th grade. Age waivers may be granted to younger alumni of SStS courses.
If you participated in a 2017 or 2018 SStS course, please use the returning students tab to access the application for SStS alumni.
