4. Short Responses

The questions are as follows: - Beyond academics, what are you passionate about? - What are the virtues and vices of individualism? - Which academic subject do find least interesting? Why? - What is something about which you have changed your mind in the last few years?

Required Documents

Once you have all four 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.
