Since the maximum number of accepted participants is 30, a careful selection is carried out in order to make sure that the learning environment is as dynamic and challenging as possible.

The Selection Committee focuses on the following factors:
• Academic performance and fluency in English;
• Consistency of the academic background/professional expertise with the topics covered in the Summer School;
• Individual potential as expressed by the applicant’s CV;
• Strength of the motivation and commitment of the applicant as expressed in the personal statement.

Upon receiving candidates’ online application, the EC Office will check that compulsory requirements are met and that all required documents have been correctly submitted. The application package will then be passed on to the Selection Committee, which is chaired by the Director of the Engaging Conflict Summer School and constituted by scholars and experts appointed by T.wai and the University of Turin. 

No application will be accepted after Friday 26 April 2019 (23:50 Rome time).

All complete applications reaching the EC Office by Friday 26 April 2019 will be assessed by Monday 6 May 2019. Selection results will be sent individually to all applicants (whether admitted or not) immediately thereafter.
