Selection Process

It is strongly recommended that each applicant review our Virtual Info Session along with the Handbook for Applicants and the Application Instructions. Written applications and all accompanying materials must be received at the Yale-China office by midnight on December 1, 2017. Select applicants will be offered a first-round group interview during the week of December 11. Alumni who are applying for the fellowship from outside New Haven may opt for a telephone interview instead. Finalists will be offered an in-person interview with the selection committee in late January in New Haven. Outstanding candidates for whom no positions are available at the time of our initial offers may be awarded alternate status. Appointed Fellows require mandatory orientation in May and attend a training conference in August before the school term begins.
