How do I apply?

Typically, applications open in August each year. However, our intake cycle has been interrupted by COVID-19, and until the end of 2022 new cohorts will be admitted on a modified cycle as conditions permit. Please follow us on social media for announcements about upcoming application cycles.

Applications can be found on this page, and also be requested by contacting us.

The admissions process for the Class of 2022 requires you to fill out an Application Form and return it (along with all required documentation) to Tujenge Scholars Program. These forms are available at the bottom of this page in a printable version and an electronically-fillable version. Both versions are identical. You may submit whichever format is more convenient.


Applications must be received on June 11, 2021 by 5:00PM.

Applicants will be notified by June 25th, 2021 of the status of their application.

Applications received after the deadline will not be considered, regardless of reason, excuse, or circumstance.

Supplemental Documents
