1. What is the application deadline? Can I apply after the deadline?
The application deadline is January 10. Applications received by January 10 will be considered in the first round of decisions. You can apply after the deadline, even as late as the end of August. However, most spaces will be filled, and most awards assigned, after the first round. To ensure that you will be considered in the first round, you should aim to have your application (all components) uploaded by the middle of December.
