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 cannot 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 requested materials are submitted with the online application by November 1, 2017 (11:59 p.m. EST). The online application portal will not be accessible after the deadline. Incomplete applications cannot be considered.

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

Yes. However, it will be possible to edit application details and/or names of referees for up to three days after submitting the application, but no later than the application deadline, November 1, 2017 (11:59 p.m. EST). We recommend that applicants, as a courtesy to their referees, submit their application form early enough to give the referees sufficient time to upload their recommendations to the online portal. 

How are letters of reference uploaded?

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 once the application is submitted.

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, to be held via Skype, will be contacted 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.
