If you plan to apply and you meet the general requirements, we recommend a pre-application telephone call with the appropriate departmental director. Please email the appropriate director your CV and, ideally, your personal statement (see application) and indicate that you would like to set up a telephone call to discuss the fellowship. Please be prepared to discuss your general research interests and career goals. The purposes of the call is to determine eligibility for the program and to assess how well your research interests and goals met the aims of the fellowship program. This is not a required part of the application process, but it is recommended.
We do accept applications on a rolling basis; however, all application materials must be received by September 15th to be considered for the fellowship beginning the following July 1. (For example, applications for 2009-2010 fellows are due by September 15, 2008.)
