- The Society will request that the three additional letters of recommendation be submitted electronically - not by email, but through a link we will provide in our correspondence with the referees. After receipt of the nomination, the referees will be contacted by our office both by regular mail and email. (This is why full and accurate email addresses are necessary to process the nomination.) Full instructions for uploading letters will be provided to each referee, along with a password to enter the secure site.
- Our communication with the candidates will request that written materials be submitted both electronically through a link to our submission portal and by mail or express mail. Full instructions for uploading the C.V., list of publications, research proposal, and three samples of work will be provided, along with a password to enter the secure site.
- The candidate is requested to provide official transcripts of both undergraduate and graduate records. (Ideally, transcripts should be forwarded directly to the Society from the universities involved; however, candidates who have sealed transcripts may submit them with their mailed materials.)
On the basis of the materials submitted, the Senior Fellows select a certain number of candidates for interview. It is from this number that the final selection is made. The Society pays the traveling expenses of those candidates interviewed.
Please note: If still pursuing the Ph.D., Junior Fellows should be at the dissertation stage of their theses and be prepared to finish their degrees within a year of becoming fellows. If already a recipient of the degree, they should not be much more than a year past the Ph.D. at the time the fellowship commences. Most Junior Fellows receive the Ph.D. just prior to the start of the fellowship.
The deadline for receiving nominations for Junior Fellowships which begin July 1, 2013 is Friday, August 31, 2012. No nomination will be accepted with a postmark past the deadline. Nominations will not be accepted by email.
