CIR Summer Institute 2021

Returning in summer 2021, CIR will offer a fully digital Summer Institute for high school and rising college students across New Mexico. The Summer Institute will be held June 21-25, from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm every day via Zoom, with a one-hour lunch break.

Each day, participants will have three 1-hour lessons: an introductory overview to a foreign language; a geopolitical or cultural lesson on the region where the language is spoken; and finally, a professional development session.


Want to participate?

It is free to participate and open to students who will be a freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, or college freshman as of August 2021.

To participate, students need to complete an application, including a 500-words-or-less explanation of why they want to participate, and how the Summer Institute will benefit them academically and professionally. Please complete the application before June 15 (11:59 pm).

Admission will be offered on a rolling basis. Students will be contacted shortly by a member of the CIR team to discuss participation in the Summer Institute. We look forward to meeting you!
