Application Process

The application process is straightforward (and free of charge). As part of the application, you will be asked to submit two short writing responses and provide a name of a reference who can speak to your strengths as a candidate.

An admissions committee makes admissions decisions. The committee consists of faculty, staff, and senior consultants of the Tikvah Scholars Program. Your application will be read by at least two members of the committee. Select applicants will be invited for a short video interview with at least one member of the committee. Ultimately, candidates will be invited to become Tikvah Scholars this summer based on the quality, depth, and sophistication of their writing; their demonstration of virtuous character and potential for leadership, broadly defined; and their ability to clearly communicate their opinions and interests.
