K12 Website FAQ's

  • Question:  When is the application due?
    • There is no due date for the application.  This is because we have opted for an open enrollment process, such that the selection of final candidates is ongoing until we have achieved a qualified candidate pool.  Applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible to be considered, and the application for the July, 2019 cohort opened on December 1st, 2018.

  • Question:  When will candidates be notified of being accepted or denied?
    • By late spring of 2019.  Because of the rolling enrollment process, we will let candidates know by late spring of 2019 if they have been accepted or not, although notification could come sooner as scholars are selected.
