ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Spend the first week getting to know your host country before studying at The Hague Summer School
Spend the first week getting to know your host country! You’ll be learning about the Netherlands’ social and educational context, specifically focusing on higher education and cultural diversity in theory and practice. Under the auspices of ECHO, the Center for Diversity Policy, students will visit Amsterdam and meet student leaders representing migrant communities.
For the next two weeks, you’ll study at The Hague Summer School, a cutting-edge modular set of courses based on the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The classes focus on solving global issues by connecting the public and private sectors. There is no better place to learn and practice world citizenship than in The Hague (Den Haag), the International City of Peace and Justice, and the political and cultural heart of the Netherlands.
Your college or university must be an institutional member of COE for you to participate in this program.
TRIO directors must nominate students to apply to this program. Eligible students are TRIO Student Support Services or McNair participants in good academic and social standing with their institutions, have at least sophomore status, and have demonstrated leadership ability and potential. COE will prioritize sophomores, juniors, and those who have not previously studied or traveled overseas.
Students must submit each application with a transcript (unofficial is acceptable), TRIO staff recommendation, personal essay, and $250 deposit to COE by February 15, 2023. COE will refund the deposit to unsuccessful program applicants. COE will notify applicants of their acceptance status by late February.
