"The Wexner Program was a source of support and sense of belonging, a frame of reference, and provided direct access to a pool of professionals that could be approached for advice."

When should I submit my Candidacy Initiation Form?
Candidates are strongly encouraged to submit their Candidacy Initiation Form as early as possible. This is important in order to leave enough time to work on your essays and complete your full Application Form. It is also recommended that candidates register for the TOEFL/ IELTS test as early as possible.
Can I submit the Candidacy Initiation Form without an actual TOEFL/ IELTS / GRE score?
Yes, you can.
When is the latest I can take the required TOEFL/ IELTS test for the 2020 admission cycle?
HKS allows applicants to take the required standardized tests up to the application deadline (December 2019). For further information on this topic and others, please look at HKS’s Admissions Blog.
I'm not sure whether or not I should take the TOEFL / IELTS test. Whom should I ask?
Please contact the HKS admission's office directly by email Admissions@hks.harvard.edu with your question. If you are exempt by Harvard from taking the TOEFL/IELTS tests, please let The Foundation know as soon as possible.
I'm a civil servant and I'm not sure if I have the five years of experience required by the Civil Service. Where and how do I find that out?
Please be in direct contact with the human resources department in your office regarding this question.
If I choose to re-apply to the program, can I use my earlier Candidacy Initiation and/or Application Forms?
Candidates who re-apply will need to fill out the forms once again, though they may base their answers on the material they have already submitted to the Foundation. We require this because forms may change from year to year.
Can members of the same family apply for the program?
Members of the same family can apply for the Fellowship, however, the Fellowship is awarded to no more than one family member per current academic year.
Does IDF military service count for the seven years of experience required by the Foundation?
Only when referring to a professional military career. Mandatory service, including additional service as an officer (קבע ראשון לקצינים ו/או נגדים), will not be considered as experience in the public sector.
