The Kairos application consists of two distinct parts: an online application and a phone interview. Before you can fill out the application, you must prepare the following documents. All documents (with the exception of the short answer) should be saved in PDF format with your first and last name in the file name.

Required Documents

Once you have all five documents prepared, you can now fill out this online application


Finally, student members of the Kairos Scholars Recruitment Committee would like to conduct a brief phone interview with each applicant. The interviewer will ask you a few questions over the phone, allowing the application reviewers to get to know you better. Feel free to ask any questions you have about the Kairos Scholars program at this time.

You will be asked to sign-up for a half-hour interview time as part of the online application. If you need to reschedule or are unable to be interviewed at your scheduled time, please contact us at We will make every attempt to reschedule missed interviews.
