When is the application deadline?

Applications for Carpe Mundi scholarships are accepted on a rolling basis – meaning that they are reviewed as they are received and award decisions are then made. Once we receive your full application, Carpe Mundi will give you a call, followed by an in-person interview. The sooner you apply the better your chances of being accepted!
