COVID-19 Participant Information and Helps

last update Feb 5, 2021


In-person programs

We are monitoring the status of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) closely in the California Bay Area and in the 42+ countries our participants come from. Although limitations to enter the U.S. have been removed there are still requirements for travelers arriving from overseas. Vaccination is in progress and California has created a monitoring program called "Blueprint for a Safer Economy".

TVLP remain committed to offer in-person programs as soon as the state and county lift the current limitations. 

Admitted participants are invited to stay in touch and share mutual updates. If you still have a chance to travel to California contact your admission specialist to discuss how we could accommodate your needs.

Applications are open and selection is progressing at regular speed. As always, there is no application fee. Scholarships and other financial aid are regularly assigned. Applicants are invited to consider in-person programs in Summer 2021 and to discuss all participation opportunities with their Admission Specialist including options in case of issues in attending the program.

We understand that these extraordinary circumstances are affecting all of our participants. A Deferred Tuition Program and a Reduced Deposit is offered to admitted applicants. Financial aid packages are different for each country.
