Online Summer Academy 2022: Application

The application period for the Online Summer Academy 2022 is CLOSED. The extended application deadline ended on Tuesday, the 28th of June 2022 at 11:59 pm Berlin time. 


We tried to accomodate as many applicants as possible. The goal was to make sure that there will be vibrant discussions in every workshop group. Our application process was designed to help us understand why each applicant wanted to participate, why they are interested in a specific workshop, and whether they will actively participate in the program.

In the application process, we asked applciants which workshop they were most interested in. They were able to state their first, second, and third preference of workshops in the application form and we did our best to allocate everyone to their most preferred option. Applicants were able to familiarize themselves with the offered workshops here. Before applying, all applicants were asked to make sure that they were willing to commit to one week of intense studying and were excited about spending this week learning and working together online with a small group of other students and young professionals.

We invited people from all over the world and from all disciplines to apply, provided they are eager to spend one week diving into heterodox economics in a dedicated online space and were able to converse in English.

To apply, applicants needed to:

  • Fill out our application form, which was linked here during the application period.
  • Write a motivational statement (max. 400 words).
  • Prepare a CV (max. two pages).

They could upload their motivational statement and CV directly in the application form.

The number of participants was limited to 10 people per workshop. In the case of overbooking, the organizing team would perform a selection process based on transparent criteria to make sure the workshop groups are composed of diverse and motivated people.
