The BOLT Leader application comes in two parts:

  1. Part I is currently open, and is due on December 6th, 2017. This part only takes a minute, and is for us to collect your contact information.
  2. Part II will open on December 14th, and is due on January 14th, 2018. Part II requires you to write a few essays about yourself. In addition, there is also a required recommendation letter from an advisor or supervisor (non-peer) that should be emailed to by January 14th, 2018.

Interviews will take place at the start of the Spring 2018 semester. You will be interviewed by former BOLT Leaders and be informed about the outcome shortly after!
