Important Application Information

As of 2023, applications will be reviewed on a quarterly basis. While applications are always open, awardees must use scholarship funds toward a cohort beginning within 6 months of the Award Date. For this reason, applicants should make sure their Target Cohort Start Date is after the Award Date of the cycle they apply to. See our FAQs for more details.
