A $50 deposit is required to apply. Please write checks out to: Stanford Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery.
If your family is selected, this $50 will be applied to your registration fee (which is based on a sliding scale). If your family is not selected this year, your $50 fee will be refunded to you. In the event that the Baker Institute selects your family to attend but you decide not to attend, the deposit will not be refunded.
APPLICATIONS & DEPOSITS ARE DUE MARCH 1ST.
How much does it cost?
The cost for families to attend Listen to Me! is based on a sliding fee scale. Please note that our top priority is to help families who need this most, so DO NOT LET COSTS PROHIBIT YOU FROM APPLYING. We will work with your family to pay only as much as you are able without it becoming a financial burden to you. Please contact Julie Cooper for any questions about this policy:
How are families selected?
The Listen to Me! Summer Institute has a limited number of openings. We currently accept 14 families per year. Priority is given to families in greatest need of resources, information, and/or access to intervention services. We do keep a waiting list.
When will I know if my family has been accepted?
Accepted families are notified by mail, usually on or soon after May 1st.
After you have received an acceptance letter, you must mail in the requested deposit to hold your family's place. If we do not receive your deposit by May 15th, we will have to give your spot to a family on our waiting list.
