Application Review Process

Applications are reviewed in batches. Applications received by the priority deadline are in the first review batch.

Applications received after the priority deadline are reviewed in a weekly batch until the program is full. Applications that arrive after the program is full are not reviewed until space becomes available. Pending applications are kept in a secure file for one calendar year.

Students who miss the priority deadline are encouraged to inquire if space is still available before submitting an application. Please note - the program is often full after the first review batch.

Selection Process

Space in our program is severely limited - we usually receive many more applications than space available. In a competitive situation, preference is given to applicants who demonstrate the greatest need and highest level of motivation to use their education to make a positive impact on their families and communities.
