The application period for the 2022-23 Discover Year has now closed. The application period for the 2023-24 Discover Year will open December 1, 2022. We look forward to reviewing your application at that time.


At Discover Year, we embrace diversity in all its forms and therefore seek to recruit participants of varied ages, perspectives, backgrounds and nationalities. While we take an inclusive approach to admissions, it is vital to the success of the program that participants be open-minded and fully committed to the process of self-development and collaboration. We are looking for young adults who are motivated to uncover their greater purpose in life and to figure out how they can make the most of their unique potential. For this reason, admission to the Discover Year program is based both on the completed application as well as a brief interview, to be scheduled with selected candidates following the initial screening of applications.
