The application process for the 2021/2022 Fellows Class (Class XVII) opens August 2020. The deadline to apply is Monday, March 1, 2021.

It is the prospective Fellow’s responsibility to ensure the application has been successfully completed and submitted with the required letters of recommendation and academic transcripts.

Each application is then carefully screened by a team of reviewers looking for the qualities that make an excellent Fellow. The field is extremely competitive, so only the very best will be accepted into the program.

Applicants to Class XVII will be notified of the panel’s decision to consider their application further into the regional interview early late-March 2021.

Class XVII Fellows will be notified no later than May 7, 2021.


– If you are a 1L applicant, please submit your undergraduate transcripts as usual by the deadline. Once your grades have posted and your first semester 1L transcript is available, please submit that as it is received by your home institution. There is a grace period for delayed transcripts.
