Application materials are due on the second Friday in September. They include a five-page project proposal and five-page personal statement, unofficial transcripts and the name and contact information of an Earlham faculty member who may serve as a reference upon nomination.
Selected applicants are interviewed and up to four applicants are put forward for nomination for the fellowship. Final application materials are due to the Thomas J. Watson Foundation the first week in November.
Winners are announced in early March.
