How many candidates do you accept each year?

We accept two candidates per year.

How many internal candidates vs. external candidates do you accept?

We have no policy regarding internal vs. external candidates. We make every effort to select the best candidates available regardless of their current position.

Will you consider my application if materials are missing by the deadline?

Due to the volume of applications, incomplete applications will not be considered.

Will you let me know when you receive my application?

Unfortunately, given the volume of applicants, individual communications are difficult. If you have submitted your completed application to ERAS, we will review the application and contact you only if you have been selected for an interview.

I was selected for an interview but cannot make the interview date. May I reschedule the interview?

Interviews are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. If you cannot make your interview date, please contact the fellowship administrator to see if other days are available. If all interview slots are full, we will not be able to make individual accommodations.
