The ESAP 2021 program will be online only in response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Unfortunately, there have been changes to the following courses:
- Biotechnology (cancelled)
- Robotics (cancelled)
- Nanotechnology (only enrolling students living in the US, due to lab requirements)
The remaining courses will be delivered online. Our office moved to a virtual environment in March 2020; our staff is available remotely and 2021 applications will continue to be processed as normal.
If you have questions or concerns regarding ESAP, please contact us via email ONLY at email@example.com. We ask that you DO NOT call our office or leave voicemail messages. We make every effort to respond to emails in a timely manner.
For applicants and institutions, please note that we are no longer able to accept transcripts (or any other documents) by mail or fax, as our office’s operations are being performed remotely. Please have your school send your official transcript via email, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Transcripts will be uploaded to your account within 1-3 business days after receipt, if your online application has been submitted via College Net.
We appreciate your cooperation.
