New two-phase application for 2012-2013:

  1. In October 2012, the Foundation opened on its website the Phase One online application. The Phase One online application must be submitted directly by the applicants, including the portfolio, no later than November 28, 2012.
  2. Applicants deemed eligible based on their Phase One application will be invited to submit a Phase Two application and compete for a nomination from their institution. Hence NYU's campus deadline in early February applies to Phase Two only. Only those candidates who completed Phase One and were invited to apply will be considered for nomination by NYU.
