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! 

As of April 20th, 2017, new applicants will be put on a waitlist.  However, we often have many students move from the waitlist onto our programs, so still apply if you are interested.  The sooner the better!
