What should I expect from the time I apply to when I start my service?

Writing tests will be held in early April for all IPSS applicants.

Accepted applicants will be invited to an orientation meet in early May after they have received notification that they have been accepted to the program. Students will spend the early part of the summer updating career collateral—like their resume and cover letter. Depending on the student’s organization, contact may start during the summer, although a majority of the communication with organizations will take place during the first three weeks of September.

How soon will I receive an admissions decision?

Admissions decisions for most programs are typically made 4 to 6 weeks after all application materials have been received.

However, applicants to the translation and interpretation programs should expect an admissions decision 6 to 8 weeks after each scholarship review deadline.
