Applications to Summer Academies!





Applications are open for all students from any field of study in any university.

Invitations to the Summer Academy events are going to be sent out via the ESTIEM network as well as to other IEM and Engineering student organisations around the world. This will ensure a truly global dimension to the Summer Academy project, something essential in discussions related to leadership and ethics.

The participants are selected based on their interest in the topic and willingness to learn, rather than on previous academic achievements or a ‘first come first served' basis.

Application Procedure

To be participant of Summer Academy, you need to apply for the place.

Therefore it is necessary to prepare a CV, write a motivation letter and email it to the organisers. To ensure the high quality, each of  our Academies have a limited capacity of 14/15 participants.

The Academic Leader of each event will choose the participants based on their motivation letter. ESTIEM has no influence on that decision.

Please send both the CV and the Motivation Letter files in .pdf format to apply.sac@estiem.org

Dates and Deadlines:

  • Participants are chosen over a week after application deadline
  • Payment received during 10 days period after you were elelcted by Academic Leader

If you fail to pay the participation fee over 10 days, you will lose your place and somebody of the waiting list may step in!

So even if you did not get a place in the first time, do not make other plans. There is still a chance to get a place, if somebody else cancels. You will get notified by Project Leader.
