Apply for Scholars Academy

What happens after you have applied?


Shortlisted candidates will meet with the review committee for a 20-minute interview. The interview ensures that students admitted to the program not only meet the qualifications on paper, but are capable of setting themselves apart by communicating their accomplishments and goals in a professional and articulate manner.


Regardless of the outcome, all applicants will be notified on their status for being shortlisted for an interview. Should they choose to accept feedback, appointments to go over their application and interview process is offered to unsuccessful candidates. We encourage unsuccessful candidates to reapply after meeting with a specialist and making changes to their application.
