How to apply
Those interested in applying for the GGP fellowship must complete the following two-part application. Applicants are encouraged to review the expectations for the fellow and sponsoring department or program and determine their ability and willingness to commit the time and funding required for GGP participation.
Part I one of the GGP application, the letter of intent, must be submitted by June 1 for admission to the program. Submitting a letter of intent does not obligate the department or program or applicant in any way; it will apprise GGP staff to plan for application review and initiate the process for all who make a formal commitment for application by the concept paper due date.
For Part II, applicants must submit a curriculum vitae, letters of support, a concept paper, description of course work and their mentor’s name and information, if known, to the GGP program office. All components are due by June 30.
