All Wexner Graduate Fellow and Davidson Scholar applicants are required to submit the following through an on-line application:
ESSAYS: The application includes two long essays (4500 characters maximum), one short essay (1000 characters maximum), and many short-answer questions about your academic and educational experiences and professional aspirations.
ACADEMIC TRANSCRIPTS (UNDERGRADUATE, AND IF APPLICABLE, GRADUATE): Transcripts should be uploaded to the application form. Unofficial transcripts will be accepted.
GRE TEST SCORES: If any of the programs to which you are applying require the GRE or other standardized graduate test, please submit your scores as part of your application. If none of your schools require the GRE or a standardized test, you do not need to submit them to The Wexner Foundation.
LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION: Applicants must submit three letters of recommendation as part of the application. At least one must be from an academic instructor who has worked closely with you and one from a supervisor who is well-acquainted with you and your experience in a professional or volunteer setting. If you are in the first year of your graduate program, one of your letters must be from a teacher or academic advisor in your current program (this could suffice as your academic reference). No more than three letters will be accepted.
VIDEO RESPONSE: Applicants must submit a 60-second video in response to a question posted within the application. The video should not be created professionally. Additional guidelines are provided within the application.
DOCUMENTATION OF ACCEPTANCE: While you do not need to have been accepted to your graduate institution at the time you submit your application, fellowships will not be formalized until there is official documentation that you have been accepted into the program designated for your career preparation.
JEWISH STUDIES – COPIES OF FUNDING OR FELLOWSHIP OFFERS: Jewish Studies applicants must submit copies of funding or fellowship offers from graduate institutions or other sources if such an offer is extended prior to our interviews. See below for further guidelines.
