  • 11–27 years old and attend one of the target schools *
  • Be a US citizen or permanent resident (or are in the process)

Application Process

Applications are accepted year-round.

If you attend one of the target schools (Martin Luther King, Jr MS, Visitación Valley MS, or Phillip & Sala Burton HS), you may also pick up an application from the school and submit it to your school’s main office or college center.

An ETS advisor will contact you once we receive your application.
