Application Advice

Make sure to give yourself a couple of weeks to complete this application as there are multiple components that require prior planning.

We suggest you draft your responses elsewhere and copy and paste in your responses (so you don't lose them).

Make sure you submit your Teacher/Staff Member Reference information at least a week before the deadline to give him/her/them time to submit their response before the application deadline (see part 3 of this application).

Thank you for applying for the nXu Fellowship! We are excited to get to know you!
