Launch Academy Application Process

1) Apply online here.

The last round of applications are due by January 29th 11:59pm. All years are welcome to apply. We are currently only accepting applications for Digital Media, Digital Strategy, and Web Design. Extra consideration is given to existing HackCville members and program participants.

Apply to Launch here

2) Get called back for an interview.

After our team reviews your application, you may be invited back for an interview. Interviews will be on a rolling basis – this means you should get your application in sooner rather than later.

3) Receive acceptance & submit deposit.

If you’re accepted, you’ll have one week to submit a $250 deposit to confirm your spot. (This can be reduced/waived for those with financial need.) You’ll get this back at the end of the program.

4) The program begins.

In May, one week after UVA final exams end, you will begin the 5-week immersive training. The entire program runs May 21 – August 10.
