Within a week from the time that you have emailed OIP you will receive a link to the online application which you must complete. You will be asked to include a short (500 words) essay explaining why you would like to participate in the seminar of your choice. You can access the application with your BC name and password.

3. Meet with faculty leader(s)
Once you have submitted your essay, you need to contact the faculty leader(s) of your chosen program to setup a meeting. If necessary, OIP will help coordinate meeting times.
