Applying to the Institute

In order to apply, you will need to complete an application package, which will include
  • a short essay detailing what you hope to research during the program
  • a recommendation form completed by a faculty member.

You should apply for this program if you are a motivated student who can demonstrate outstanding academic ability. The Institute is meant to be foundational for future humanities research and does not presume extensive previous research experience. However, your application essay should articulate your specific interest in the program and detail your ability to perform at a superior intellectual level. Your letter of recommendation should support this, as should your past academic performance.

The application deadline is Monday, March 23. You will need to have completed both an application and a faculty recommendation form.
