A:  Congratulation emails will be sent no later than January 21st.


Q:  What will happen if COVID prevents travel to the Institute?

A:  If travel is deemed unsafe by the CDC or Lafayette is not welcoming visitors to campus during the weeks that the program is scheduled, the program will be cancelled for the year.  If so, participants will have the option to defer their acceptance to the Institute by one year.  If academic or professional plans preclude a participant from deferring, all resources assembled for the program will be sent to that participant to support them in their future endeavors!
