Launch Academy Application Process

**Applications for Launch 2019 are now closed.**

Apply to Launch here

2) Get asked back to the second stage.

After our team reviews your written application, you may be invited back to complete a mini skills-challenge. This is a week-long, “hands on” style project that you’ll complete on your own. The challenges are track specific, and will have you use some resources we give you along with resources you find on your own to actually create something. This is our way of seeing how you tackle challenges and if you can self-teach a little bit.

3) Get called back for an interview.

The last stage of the Launch application process is a short, in-person interview. If you get asked back after the skills challenge round, we’ll send you some interview time slots and you just have to sign up for one. Interviews are held at #9 Elliewood Ave with at least 2 Launch team members.

4) Receive acceptance & submit deposit.

If you’re accepted, you’ll have one week to read over the Launch student contract and submit a $350 deposit to confirm your spot (this can be reduced/waived for those with financial need). You’ll get this back at the completion of the program.

5) Training begins.

Our spring semester Countdown training program begins in mid-January for about 3-5 hours/week. On May 20th you will begin the 4-week immersive summer training program before starting your 9-week internship at the end of June.

Summer training runs May 20 – June 14 and internships run from June 17 – August 16. You do need to be available for the entire duration of the program.

For international students:

Launch is able to accommodate international students who have a green card. Unfortunately, we are not able to support international students who only have an F-1 visa at this time.
