Applicant presentations are normally scheduled for late April and late November.

Under exceptional circumstances, students may be admitted at other times.

Students can be in the program for one to three years, but are required to graduate within that time frame and then begin a period of paid service to the federal government equal to the time for which they received scholarship support.
