NOTE: This is the Sorensen Fellowship Draft Application, a simulation of the final application. No answers are required; the Draft Application is for feedback purposes only. The deadline for this Draft Application is Thursday, October 1, 2015 at 5pm. DO NOT COMPLETE YOUR FINAL APPLICATION HERE! TO SUBMIT A FINAL APPLICATION, CLICK HERE. Questions? Call 781-736-8577 or email


The questions we ask here are:

A) Your Biographical Data

B) Proposed Course for Spring 2016

C) Proposed Recommenders

D) Internship Organization Data
This section tells us about your 3 possible organizations. To answer this question, you will need to know specific information (address, website, phone, email) but you need not contact any of the organizations before you are accepted as a Fellow. The order in which you list the organizations does not matter. You must apply with three equally viable organizations in mind.

E) Essay
Please answer in 1000-1750 words. We strongly suggest that you copy and paste your essay from a word processing program. WE ALSO ASK THAT YOU DELIVER A HARD COPY OF YOUR ESSAY (DOUBLE-SPACED, SINGLE-SIDED, NO STAPLES) TO THE ETHICS CENTER OFFICE IN ROOM 310 OF THE ABRAHAM SHAPIRO ACADEMIC COMPLEX BY THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2015 AT 5PM - but hard copies of application materials are optional for the draft application.

F) Summer Earnings Replacement Grant
Please let us know whether you are applying for a Summer Earnings Replacement Grant to supplement the $4000 award ($3500 for domestic internships). This will not affect your application, which will continue to be need-blind.

G) Spring Preparation Meetings and Internship Confirmation Deadlines
Confirm that you will be able to attend the spring preparation meetings (either in person or virtually) and that you will meet the internship confirmation deadline if you are chosen as a Fellow.
