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.

Describe the qualities you as an individual will contribute to this academic community.
2. Curriculum Vitae
3. Letter of Recommendation
Your responses should be double-spaced, 12 pt font. Please save them as PDFs with your First and Last Names in the file name. Your essay should be no longer than two pages (double-spaced).
5. Short Responses
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.
