Please contact your home institution liaison to receive a pre-screening application. Once your home institution approves of your participation (based on the guidelines set above), UF will then review the student’s information. Students will be emailed a link to set up an interview date and time in February or March with both the UF Program Manager and the Disney Recruiter. Selection will be limited to those students with the most merit and those who pass the initial screening interview.
