How to apply
Since the total number of participants is set at 35 and it includes both students and professionals, we expect tough competition to secure a place at the School. We therefore advise to apply as soon as possible, provided you meet the admission criteria.
In order for their application to be considered, applicants must complete and send the 2019 application form and their updated CV to the TOMidEast office (firstname.lastname@example.org). Click on the following links to download: Application form 2019 doc or Application form 2019 pdf.
In addition to these, students only are requested to send (via email) a copy of their official enrolment letter/certification testifying their current student status and an academic transcript. Student status will be extended to applicants who graduated in December 2018 and later and who are not currently employed full-time. In this case applicants are requested to send (via email) a copy of their certificate testifying their graduate status and an academic transcript. The transcript will be used to select the best candidates, both for a place at the School and for one of the scholarships, if requested. Students applying for a Freetorino scholarships are also required to give proof of their residence by filling in, signing and returning this document.
The TOMidEast Summer School office will begin accepting applications from Monday 4th March 2019.
No application will be accepted after Monday 20th May 2019, 5pm Rome time.

When all necessary application documents are in the hand of the TOMidEast office, the secretary will place them in an individual file and make sure all compulsory requirements are met. If this is the case, the file is passed on to the senior scholars who select successful candidates.
All complete applications reaching TOMidEast by April 15th 5pm (Rome time) will be evaluated by April 19th and official confirmations will be sent individually immediately thereafter. All remaining applications sent by the closing date (20th May, 5 pm Rome time) will be assessed and results communicated by May 24th.
Successful applicants receiving an offer must formally accept it and send proof of fees payment (direct bank transfer) via email. Upon receiving these, the TOMidEast office will confirm the allocation of the place. Applicants who should fail to send such confirmation and proof of payment within a week from the notification of their successful application will have their offer withdrawn.
