“I love how the curriculum allows the students to get a pretty good grasp of the various courses in linguistics, such as phonetics and sociolinguistics."
SLIYS is open to high school students who will be freshman, sophomores, juniors, or seniors (grades 9-12) in the upcoming school year (i.e. 2019-2020). This typically corresponds to the ages of 14-18.
Admission to the SLIYS program is competitive. While there are no strict GPA requirements, a 3.0 or better overall GPA is recommended.
Students with Physical Disabilities
The organizers of SLIYS are committed to making the program available to all eligible students. In no way should a student be discouraged from applying because of a disability. Any student who needs accommodations due to a disability should indicate this on their application, though this is for information purposes only and will not be used to evaluate the application.
