Application Instructions

Applications will be evaluated on both the content and quality of your written responses and video submission. Please read all the instructions thoroughly before submitting your application:

  • Submit your Wellness Advocate application (6 short essay questions and a 2-3 min instructional video) by Friday, June 16, 2023.
  • Respond to the questions using clear, specific examples and experiences. Please limit your responses to 2 paragraphs maximum.
  • The video requirement is an opportunity to demonstrate your ability to communicate ideas and information effectively. Fancy formatting and video production skills are not required.
  • The form cannot be saved and completed later, so it may be helpful to type your responses in a separate document and cut and paste them into the web form when you’re ready to submit. Please proofread your responses and make any needed edits before you submit.
  • You will receive a confirmation message when you have successfully submitted your form, and you will be contacted soon after the application deadline regarding next steps.
