The Graduate School’s hard deadline for students to submit their applications online is Monday, June 25th at 5:00 p.m.   Washington’s deadline is July 2. I have set an earlier deadline so that we may review the applications and conduct our process.   If you wish to give your students an earlier deadline in order to review their projects that is completely up to you.

Please bring this announcement to the attention of your students who will advance to candidacy by next fall and who would benefit from subsidized research abroad.  I encourage you to post this information where your graduate students can see it.

THIS DEADLINE IS ABSOLUTE.  Please tell your students who plan to apply to let their recommenders know that their letters must be included in the student’s packet on this date (June 25th).”
