Admissions for the 2018-19 Discover Year are now closed.

Admissions for the 2019-20 session will open in November 2018.


At Discover Year, we embrace diversity in all its forms and therefore seek to recruit participants of varied ages, perspectives, backgrounds and opinions. 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.
