The application will be available during the registration process or you can download one from the website. The deadline to apply is Friday, May 18 and two letters of recommendation will need to be provided with the application. Applicants will also be required to attend an interview prior to beginning the program.

Regular progress in this position will be expected, and evaluations will be provided regularly throughout the summer. Involvement as a CIT does not guarantee future employment; however, successful participants are given first consideration for open positions.
