Women of an international background, including foreign students, immigrants, or first-generation Americans, who are first year entrants to a U.S. college or university program in Fall 2017 are eligible to apply for the Red Thread Fellowship Program. There are no GPA or U.S. residency requirements.
The application consists of several short-answer questions, two essays, and two letters of recommendation. We require that at least one of your recommenders be an academic reference, such as a teacher or a guidance counselor. Both the application form and the letters of recommendation must be submitted online by the application deadline to be considered.
We will select a short list of candidates to interview by phone. Interviews will be 30-45 minutes and will take place over May 2017.
Please contact us if you have additional questions or have trouble accessing the application form.
Applications for the 2017-2018 Fellowship Program will be accepted from January 19 until April 15, 2017. Applications that are incomplete or late will not be considered. Award announcements will be made on June 15, 2017.
Teachers, guidance counselors and coaches may download our Red Thread 2017 Prospectus to share with potential applicants.
