From July through October.
The Fellowship Selection Committee will extend interview invitations only after reviewing completed applications. We will contact interviewing candidates (by email) as early as possible to permit suitable travel planning.
Due to the complexity of the schedule, it is near impossible to reschedule an interview date once it is confirmed. We ask that applicants take special care in picking their interview dates, in order to avoid having to request a change.
Email the program coordinator as soon as you are aware of your need to cancel your interview. This will allow the interview spot to be filled with another candidate.
Due to the volume of applicants, only those selected for interview will be contacted.
Although we would appreciate the opportunity to converse with you directly regarding your academic accomplishments, it is impossible to speak with individual applicants due to the enormous number of applications received. Due to the volume of applicants, only those selected for interview will be contacted.
