Good afternoon,

Thank you all to who completed our interest form. We are thrilled to see so many of you excited and able to help us evaluate applications this year! We'll be in touch in the coming weeks with this year's assignments. 

At this time, we wanted to ask that you please remind your students that the deadline is right around the corner! Applications must be submitted by Tuesday, November 15 at 8 PM Eastern. Where possible, please advise students to submit their applications early and not to tempt our technological overlords with a surge of last minute submissions. 

If your students have questions, you can point them to our upcoming Office Hours for CLS Applicants. On Tuesday, November 8 at 3 PM Eastern, CLS Communications Officer, Rori DiFiore, and I will be available to answer applicants’ questions as they finalize their materials.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Assistant Manager, Outreach and Selection
