Application for Summer Support Program

The Summer 2019 Application Support Program is currently closed but will reopen for Summer 2020. Please use the information below as a reference.

The Summer Fellowship Application Support Program serves to assist UA students in completing fellowship applications over the summer and to improve the quality of the applications. We provide summer deadlines for students to submit drafts of their fellowship applications for feedback.

If you enroll in the program, you will commit to submitting at least one draft of an application over the summer.

Eligibility: Applicants must be enrolled at the University of Arizona in the spring of 2019 and/or plan to enroll in the fall of 2019

Deadline: The deadline has passed but we try to help students at any point during the summer. If you are interested in participating, please email Shelley Hawthorne Smith.

If you would like to apply to the Summer Application Support Program, please respond to the following questions in a word processing document (such as Word). Please save the document with your name in the file name. Attach the responses to email and send the email to Shelley Hawthorne Smith and David Neufeld.
