Application system closed

Applications for membership during the academic year 2019-2020 were due by October 15, 2018.  That deadline has now passed and we are no longer accepting membership applications for that competition. 

Our membership competition is held on an annual basis and we anticipate posting new application materials for the next competition in June of 2019.  That competition will be for scholars interested in coming to the Institute in the academic year 2020-21.  The new application materials will include some updated content, but we do not expect any major changes to the application itself.

The announcement of the next membership competition, with full details about provisions to be offered in 2020-21, will be prepared and posted on the web in the spring. Like the application forms, we anticipate some adjustments, but no major changes to the program or provisions.  For those interested in getting an idea of what we offer to scholars who are selected for membership, the announcement relevent to the most recent past competition can be viewed here. Information about our policies for calculating stipend support for selected Members can also be viewed online.
