Steps of the Application Process

Step 1: Attend an information session.

To learn more about the program and what is expected of participants, we ask applicants to attend an information session. You do not need to RSVP for an information session in advance - just show up with your questions. Applicants' managers are also welcome to come to information sessions to learn about the program.

Please note: If the program is oversubscribed, priority will be given to applicants who attend an information session.

If you are interested in learning more about this program but unable to attend one of these sessions, contact Ronnie Haas at

Information Session Dates

Note: To receive priority as an applicant for the program, you must attend one information session. You do not need to attend an information session if you have attended one previously.

Monday, August 18 12pm – 1pm E19-306

Step 2: Have a conversation with your manager about your interest in the program.

We encourage you and your manager to focus on how your participation in the program will potentially benefit you and your work area.

Step 3: Submit your statement of interest.

Your statement of interest should include your reasons for wanting to participate in the program and a description of how your participation in MITAAP could benefit you, your work, and the work of your area. Submit your statement of interest.

Step 4: Your manager completes the Manager's Statement of Support.

Your application is considered complete once we receive both your statement of interest and your manager's statement of support. See the Statement of Support form for managers.

Step 5: Lottery

We conduct a lottery to determine the 20 participants. All completed applications that we receive by the enrollment deadline will be entered into a lottery. The first 20 people selected in the lottery will be enrolled in the program. We will notify all applicants after the lottery about whether or not they have been enrolled.
