Global Bioethics Initiative (GBI) invites students and professionals worldwide to attend its first International Bioethics Summer School in NYC (June 15-July 18, 2015) organized in collaboration with the Bohemian Literary and Benevolent Association. Join us in NYC for this 5-week one-of-a-kind educational opportunity.

Interested candidates can apply directly, but universities/departments nominate students to apply and help with their application and financial aid. National and international participants such as undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals can attend the summer school.

The closing date for EARLY APPLICATION for U.S. Citizens/Permanent Residents is March 15, 2015. The closing date for Regular Application for U. S. Citizens/Permanent Residents is May 15, 2015.

The closing date for EARLY APPLICATION for international participants is March 15, 2015.
The closing date for Regular Application for international participants is April 15, 2015.

LANGUAGE COMPETENCY: Candidates whose first language is not English will be called by a member of the Selection Committee by telephone in order to demonstrate competence in spoken English. Please provide a phone number/numbers where you may be contacted and indicate your Time Zone. International language certificates may also be accepted as proof of English proficiency/competence.

VISA: Due to visa issues, international participants must apply either early, March 15 or at the latest, April 15, 2015. Applications after that date will still be considered, but we cannot guarantee your ability to get a visa on time, so you can defer the attendance for the next year.
Once accepted you will receive a letter for your visa application. You are strongly advised to contact the American Embassy in your country for complete visa requirements as early as possible.
