Application Process

First-year students who wish to apply for a fellowship should submit the following:

  • an application distributed by the Institute director
  • a transcript
  • a resume
  • a writing sample
  • a statement of personal interest explaining why they wish to be considered for a Weaver fellowship

After reviewing these materials, the Institute director will select a few applicants for an in-person interview, and successful applicants are chosen from these interviewees. The deadline for application is April 1 of each academic year, and fellowship selection is completed by the beginning of May. (Download application)
