How do I apply for a Fellowship?
To be considered for a fellowship, all of the below steps must be completed:
Apply for admission to CSB/SJU.
Write an essay answering the following scholarship essay question: How have you challenged yourself to be a leader on issues of diversity?
The following criteria must be met for your application to be considered for a fellowship:
Applicants must be first-generation (CSB/SJU considers students to be first-generation if neither parent has a four-year degree).
Applicants must be high school seniors from the United States.
Once the application for admission, the essay and the fellowship application have been received, candidates will be chosen to participate in an on-campus interview in March. Applicants will be notified if they have been selected for an interview. Candidates will interview with a faculty member and spend a day on campus with current CSB/SJU Intercultural Leadership, Education and Development Scholars. Scholars are chosen after the on-campus interview.
