To apply, students will submit short written responses to two essay questions in the language of their choice; the essays will be judged for depth and originality. Students must be currently enrolled in 9th or 10th grade. 

Ward 4 schools include Boston Latin School, Melvin H. King South End Academy (formerly William McKinley South End Academy), and Winsor School.
