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. Draft Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. The deadline is Monday, October 10, 2016 at 5pm. DO NOT COMPLETE YOUR FINAL APPLICATION HERE! TO SUBMIT A FINAL APPLICATION, CLICK HERE. Questions? Call 781-736-8577 or email

In order to be eligible for this Fellowship, we will be checking conduct records. The presence of a record will not automatically eliminate you from the process, but please be prepared to address any concerns in your application and/or interview.


The questions we ask here are:

A) Your Biographical Data

B) Proposed Course for Spring 2017

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. List your top choice organization first, but remember that you must apply with three equally viable organizations in mind for which you are qualified.

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 MONDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2016 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.
