A personal statement
Describe the program in which you would like to participate and the reasons for doing so. Please provide specific details, including the name and description of the program, dates of participation, the level of language instruction offered at the program, and the estimated costs of the program (including travel costs). Feel free to list an alternative program as a back-up. Also discuss your goals for participating in the program, and how the program will supplement your academic plan. Please indicate in the statement if you are on financial aid. Limit your personal statement to one page. If relevant, please indicate the other sources of Colgate funding that you are applying for to support your summer language program (e.g., Career Services, summer research).
The Language Council at Colgate will review student proposals and make funding decisions.
To transfer credit back to Colgate, prior to the beginning of the program you must work with the registrar’s office to get pre-approval according to Colgate's transfer credit policies.
- Transfer credit that is not pre-approved by Colgate will not be considered after the program is complete.
- Upon completion of the intensive summer language program, students will be asked to write a brief report about their experience.
