Application Procedures

Must I submit my application online? 

Only applications submitted through Princeton University's online portal will be considered. The Fung Global Fellows Program will not accept mailed, faxed, or emailed applications.

May I submit parts of my application after the deadline? 

It is the candidate's responsibility to ensure that all materials, including three letters of recommendation, are submitted before the application deadline of November 1 (11:59 p.m. EST). The online application portal will not be accessible after the deadline. Only complete applications will be considered.

Do I have to complete the online application, including supporting materials, all at once? 

It is possible to fill out and save the basic application form initially and to re-enter the online system to upload other required documents later. We recommend that applicants submit their basic application form early enough to give their referees sufficient time to upload their recommendations to the portal before the deadline. 

How are letters of reference uploaded? 

Once applicants submit the basic application form, the three referees they name will be contacted automatically via email with a link and instructions to upload their reference letters to the online portal. Please note that additional letters by referees beyond the three named by the applicant cannot be considered.

May I include supplementary materials with my application? 

Include only the requested items; supplementary materials such as additional recommendations or publications will not be taken into consideration.

Notification of Candidates

When will I be notified? Only those applicants to be invited for interviews will be contacted via email approximately mid- to late December. All other applicants will be notified in the spring of the following year, once the selection process has been completed. 

Evaluation Procedures

Who will evaluate my application? 

Applications will be reviewed by the director of the Fung Global Fellows Program and a search committee.

Will I receive a copy of my evaluation? 

All application materials and the selection committee's evaluations remain confidential. The committee will not provide feedback on individual applications.
