College Admission Requirement: Entrance Requirement- Applicants must have completed undergraduate level.
Test Requirement : There is no minimum GPA or GRE. The research statements, program of study, reference letters, transcripts, GRE and GPA are important parts of this competitive fellowship and reviewers consider them all.
Supporting Material: Transcripts: Request an official transcript from each university or college you have attended, including your current fall transcript. Have transcripts mailed directly to the Krell Institute.
-GRE: Request that your GRE scores be sent to the Krell Institute, code 6343, and department code 5199.
-PRA: If you are a Permanent Resident Alien (PRA), you must send a copy of the front and back of your PRA card to the Krell Institute as a requirement of the application.
-References: We recommend that you use the link within our online system to notify references of your request for letters. The system will send your references an email with a link to our online system where they can submit a letter. Alternatively, you can download either a PDF or MSWord version of the reference form for their use.
-Program of Study: Generate your Program of Study (POS) with your graduate advisor’s assistance. If you cannot get a graduate advisor at your preferred institution to review your POS, ask your current advisor to help you generate and approve the proposed POS. You will be required to check a box on the final submission page that confirms that both you and your advisor approve of the POS before you are able to press the “Final Submission” button.
