Apply for a STAGE/IME Fellowship

When applying, don’t write or say what you think we want to hear, because there’s no way of knowing what that might be. Instead, tell us some things you’d really like us to know about you and why you want to work with us.

We are now accepting applications for the next round of fellowships. The official application form may be found here.

The deadline for fall 2019 fellowships is January 21, 2019. First interviews are held on a rolling basis. As a general rule, therefore, applications should be submitted as early as possible.

You will also be asked for three recommendations. A link to the form containing specific questions and instructions for recommenders appears on the fellowship application.

Our Interview Process

Preliminary and secondary interviews will be held at the STAGE Lab on the University of Chicago campus, located in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago. Preliminary interviews will be held in-person for Chicago-area residents and over Skype for those residing outside of the Chicago area.
