Application deadline
was Feb. 10, 2012. We are no longer accepting applications. Information regarding 2013 Summer Seminars will be posted in the fall.

Because our seminars are grant-funded, there is little cost to participate – mostly travel to Calvin College and some food while participants are here. The grants cover the cost of housing, books and materials as well as some meals and a few social events.
