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. October 15 2019 is the final deadline to submit an application for membership in 2020-21. While application materials for the coming competition are yet to be finalized, we do not expect the general instructions to change in any significant way. To get a sense of what is expected, instructions from the previous competition can be viewed here. Applicants for the academic year 2020-21 will be informed of the final decision on the application by no later than early February, 2020.
