Career Strategy Fellowships Study Abroad Summer Session

Information Sessions & Deadlines

You are here

Attending a Light Fellowship Information Session is a requirement in order to be eligible for the Light Fellowship. It is best not to wait until the last available session in case a sudden scheduling conflict arises.

  • All applicants must access one information session in the current academic year prior to the first application deadline for the applicable competition, regardless of attendance in previous academic years.
  • Information Sessions will be held virtually during the Fall 2020 term
  • Make sure you join the session on time. Information Sessions are set up so that students will not be able to join 5 minutes after the start time listed below.

There are two competitions each academic year:

  • The Early Fall Competition is for funding Spring 2021 term-time study only. Early Fall Competition applicants must attend one of the first two information sessions.
  • The Late Fall Competition is for funding study abroad for Summer 2021, Fall 2021, and the 2021-22 Academic Year. Late Fall Competition applicants must attend one of the six sessions listed below. The last information session is on December 7th; there will be no more sessions after this date (there are no information sessions in the spring).

Note: All competition deadlines are non-negotiable and will be strictly enforced to ensure a fair and manageable application process.
