I was nominated to participate in the Delegation on Diplomacy in Australia as a part of the International Scholar Laureate Program. I received this nomination b/c I am a member of the National Dean's List.
Has anyone heard of this before? The cost is $4800 which includes, air, food, hotel, tuition and other little costs. We'll visit the Australian National University, parliament, US Embassy, and such.
Here's my concern. I am applying for transfer admission to several Ivies and the University of Notre Dame. Will this activity be a significant part of my application? The experience will be personally gratifying, but for nearly 5k, I want it to benefit me in regards to admissions and future employment as well.
Please respond and share any details you might have.
