Apply Online

To use the online application, you must first create an account using your e-mail address. Once the account has been created, you will then choose the type of fellowship you wish to apply for.

You can save your information and return as many times as you like prior to the application deadline.

Short-term Visiting Fellowships
Complete the two page application (the General Information and Upload Documents sections).

All Other Fellowships

The online application has three major sections:

General Information
This is where you enter all your biographical information.

Upload Documents: Essays, Summaries and Work Samples

  1. Personal Statement and Study Plan:
    Upload the required 1,000-word Personal Statement and 500-word Study Plan. Word limits are very important since the selection committee will not review applications that exceed the word limit. Instructions on how to use the essay upload capability are in the "Essays/Samples" section of the online application.

  2. Summaries: Professional Profile and Study Plan:
    Upload the required professional profile and study plan summaries. Instructions on how to use the summary upload capability are in the "Essays/Samples" section of the online application.

  3. Work Samples:
    Upload work samples where possible. You are required to provide five (5) samples of your work. See the "How to Apply" page for help with allowable file types, or where to mail hard copies.

Recommendations
To use this online function, you must first have the e-mail address of each person you wish to submit a recommendation on your behalf. Instructions on how to use the email recommendation capability are in the "Recommendations" section of the online application.

Applying for More Than One Type of Fellowship
In some cases you may be qualified for more than one type of fellowship (for example, a U.S. and a Berkman fellowship).

To use the online application to apply for more than one type of fellowship:
  1. Complete and Submit the first application. Make sure you receive a confirmation email message before starting the second application.
  2. On the top right of the online application screen, click the “Update My Answers” link. Select the type of fellowship you are applying for with the second application. The system will retain all your biographical information (pages 1-5).
  3. Upload new/revised Essays, Work Samples and Recommendations appropriate to the second type of fellowship.
