The seminars are open to all persons, regardless of their racial or ethnic background. Diverse participants (18 years of age and older) are encouraged to apply. The leadership sessions are more beneficial to all when the group represents broad diversity, so EVERYONE is encouraged to apply.

The deadline to apply is Wednesday, February 11, 2015, at midnight. The program will begin on Friday, February 20, 2015, with a reception in the evening, and then continue on Saturday, February 21, 2015, for a full day of sessions from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
