Follow the instructions below! Since you will be revising your application complete the essays (there are 3 of them) as WORD documents off-line (see Step 3). DO NOT submit them through the official Schwarzman on-line application until Dean Goldberg tells you to do so.
This also holds true for your recommenders (see Step 2). We do not want LORs uploaded to the application system UNTIL you are given the “go ahead” from the Campus Evaluation Committee. This is very important as your application will change over time, and once a letter is electronically submitted to Schwarzman it cannot be revised! That said, do not register the names of your recommenders using the Schwarzman on-line application at this time. This will avoid potential problems.
Step 1: Access/initiate Schwarzman’s on-line application:
The application link is: https://www.schwarzmanscholars.org/admissions/application/
You may work on the application, but DO NOT SUBMIT anything through the application management system at this time. Simply SAVE it to yourself! This is important. Instead, DO submit materials to us at External Scholarships as described below:
Step 2: Ask for 3 STRONG Letters of Recommendation. Recommendations are extremely important for the success of your Schwarzman application!
You will need 3 letters of recommendation as follows:
All recommenders are asked:
Recommenders should email their draft LORs as WORD attachments directly to Dean Goldberg (email@example.com) by the 2nd Friday of September.
Step 3: Submit the following materials using the Submit Materials tab on our website or as email attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org by Last Friday of August:
You can access a sample of the application from the Schwarzman website. The website also has links to YouTube videos.
If you or your recommenders have any questions about the Schwarzman Scholars program or campus application process, please do not hesitate to contact Dean Goldberg at email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, or 610.330.5067.
