  • Read through your application to be sure that you have completed all sections.
  • Submit your application as stated in the directions above.
  • Appropriate administrator's letter (e.g., dean/director) addressing your leadership abilities or potential, and documenting her/his support for your participation in this program. Applicants will not be considered if the appropriate administrator’s letter does not accompany the application.
This is a highly competitive program. We encourage you to have someone review your application and provide feedback before you submit. We do look for a concise answer to the questions - longer is not necessarily better. Here are some questions to ask yourself as you prepare your answers to each question.
  • Are your goals specific and achievable?
  • Does the answer to the question on group work reflect an evaluation of your own strengths in that area: perhaps cite an example or two.
  • Is the teaching/learning innovation you describe really creative? Even if it had limited success, do the lessons that you describe reflect learning that can be used when planning future simulation experiences?
  • Do the instances you cite when you have functioned as a leader reflect that you have already taken some steps in developing leadership skills?

All application materials must be received by September 30, 2015 at 5:00 PM EST.
