How To Apply


After checking the list of planned seminars, refer to this page to prepare your Summer Seminars application. Note that the participation is free. IES and its partners provide housing and meals during the seminar. (Travel expenses are not covered.)

Overview of the application process  -  Please Read Carefully ! 
The application process is twofold.
(1) - New to IES ? Create an account 
Click on "My IES".
Then, if it's the first time you apply to IES click on "You haven't begun to apply to IES yet". Follow the procedure and enter the required information and picture. Make sure to have a scan of your identity picture (face) in jpg format. Its size must not exceed 200 Kb and must be 3 x 4 cm. 

Submit and then you will receive an email with your log in and password (If not, please check your spam folder).
Make sure to save that email as you will need them each time you need to modify something in your info. You won't be able to modify your seminar choice after the application deadline. (May 1st, 2016)
(2) - Already have an account? Login and apply
You will have to go back to "Access my IES account" with your log in and password. This is the second phase. Click on "Select your seminar". You will be asked to write 4 "essays".
