Each year in November and March the program hosts an open house for prospective fellows where they interact with current fellows. In addition, they are presented with information on the key elements of the program: the opportunity to work with faculty mentors, the year-long Mellon seminar, summer research opportunities, the summer program new fellows must attend and the financial benefits of the fellowship.
At this gathering of students, the specifics of the application process are discussed. Eligible students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. The on-line application can be accessed by clicking the application link on the right side column of this page.
