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 application deadline for the applicable competition, regardless of attendance in previous academic years.
  • Information Sessions will be held virtually during the Fall 2021 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 2022 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 2022, Fall 2022, and the 2022-23 Academic Year. Late Fall Competition applicants must attend one of the six sessions listed below. The last information session is on December 13th; 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. Please be sure to be in contact with your recommender and language lector at least 3-4 weeks before the deadline.

Dates for the 2021-2022 academic year (all times are EST):

Attendance for virtual info sessions is taken by the Zoom account logged in to view the session. As such, each student attending must log in on their own account.
