IETA Application Process

IETA Application Closed

The IETA Program application deadline has passed. IETA is no longer accepting applications for its 2018-2019 Cohort 20.

Timeline: All complete applications are currently being reviewed and rated. Updates on the status of applications will be shared with applicants Wednesday, July 25. Selected applicants will be invited to interview by telephone in early August.  Applicants will be invited to participate in IETA Cohort 20 by late August. The program’s first workshop is scheduled October 10 – 12, 2018.

If there are any questions about the application process, please e-mail or contact the Program Manager at (404) 718-8874.

Medical clearance information: Please note that after being accepted into the program, you must be issued a Department of State Medical Clearance before departing overseas for assignment. The purpose of a medical clearance is to identify specific health needs and medical conditions that may require specialty management, follow-up, or monitoring. This is meant to reduce the need for medical travel during the 12-week assignment due to lack of local health resources.

Failure to receive a medical clearance is very rare, but post-specific medical clearances (Class II) are not uncommon. A Class II clearance will determine the location of a participant’s assignment. This topic will be discussed in detail during IETA’s first workshop and the medical clearance will be completed after this training session.
