Fellowship Competition 2020-2021

General Instructions

The application consists of the following:


1. Online Application. Complete and submit the Online Application. Please note that the Online Application must be submitted by the deadline in order for the submission to receive consideration. In addition to your personal information, the Online Application requires submission of Microsoft Word or PDF files containing your curriculum vitae, a research project proposal (no more than 1,500 words), a writing sample (no more than 3,500 words; footnotes and bibliography may be appended), and a two-page undergraduate course syllabus of your own design.

2. $25.00 application processing fee. This fee must be paid online via Visa or MasterCard payment. You will be able to make the payment on the submission page of the application system.

3. TWO letters of recommendation. In order for your recommenders to be alerted to your request for their recommendations, you must enter their names and emails, by clicking the “Add Recommender” button found under “Reference Letters” in the Side Menu. You should do so far ahead of the application deadline (2 October 2019) so that they have sufficient time to submit letters on your behalf. Recommenders will receive automated notification of your request and instructions for submitting their recommendations once you have added them via the “Add Recommender” button. Please be sure to follow up with your recommenders, as spam filters can interfere with the delivery of automated emails. You can check the status of recommendation submissions and re-send the automated notification to your recommenders by logging into your application account.

Please Note: We do not accept recommendations delivered via dossier services (e.g. Interfolio).

Applications must be submitted by Tuesday, 2 October 2019 11:45 PM EST. There are no exceptions or extensions to this deadline.
