Personal Statement

Think of your 1-2 page personal statement as an interview with the selection committee. We are looking for evidence of your intellectual curiosity and your interest in personal development. This is your opportunity to tell us about yourself — your hopes, ambitions, life experiences and inspirations. Be open. Be reflective.

Research Proposal

The 2-4 page research proposal is a persuasive document that describes the scope of your research, why it should be done, your methodology, your proposed timeline, and your expected results by the end of the fellowship. Preparation of the proposal, in collaboration with your research mentor, enables you to confirm that you will have a realistic project to undertake during the 10-week timeline.

Recommendation Letters

You will need two letters of recommendation. One of your letters must be from your research sponsor/mentor. The second letter should come from a professor, graduate student instructor, volunteer coordinator or academic advisor.


A resume highlights your skills related to your career interests. It connects your story to your community and includes your academic achievements, volunteer experiences, extracurricular activities, summer jobs and internships.
