Application & Travel Info

Baylor i5

Applications for the i5 in China program are completed online.

There are 2 tracks through the i5 Program:

  • Undergraduate students typically go as a Team Member. (Junior status and GPA >= 3.0)
  • Graduate students typically fill the Project Manager role. (MBA, Engineering, Masters, Law Students and mature undergraduates.) The primary difference in application is that these spots are competitive and require a formal interview with the coaching staff of i5.

To apply for the Project Manager position, submit your application and provide:

  • Recommendations - Two recommendations are required. One should be completed by someone who knows your academic work, such as a dean or professor. The second should be completed by someone who has been your supervisor in either a paid or volunteer job. Recommendations may be sent online through BearsAbroad, follow the instructions in the Recommendations Section. Those you ask for recommendations can submit their forms online, or mail them. You are responsible for being certain the recommendations are completed and have been received by us. Check BearsAbroad to see when they are checked as received.
  • Transcript - An unofficial copy of your latest transcript is required. This can be uploaded to BearsAbroad or mailed to the above address.
  • Resume - A copy of your latest resume is required. This can be uploaded to BearsAbroad or mailed.

If you are selected for one of the competitive and coveted leadership positions, you will pay no program fee! Imagine, living in China for the summer for free!
