  4. If you have already created an account for Wesleyan University Fellowships, click Let's Go!
    1. Type in your log in credentials and click LOGIN
  5. If you haven't yet created an account, click Sign up!
    1. Type in your desired log in credentials and click Let's Go!

Note: You need separate accounts in ViaTRM for study abroad and for fellowhips. If you have a study abroad account in ViaTRM, you need to set up a new account to use for fellowships, using a different email address. We know that this is confusing; ViaTRM is working to merge the two sections.

In ViaTRM, choose the fellowship(s) for which you might want to apply and complete the brief statement of interest for each of them.:

Programs → [your program of interest] → Apply Now (pink button).

"Apply Now" links to the statement of interest form, which includes 4-5 brief questions about why you're interested in this particular program. It's low-stakes, non-binding, and only visible to you and the Assistant Director of Fellowships. The preferred deadline for statements of interest is June 30, 2021 but you can still fill them out after this date.

We use ViaTRM because it allows us to gauge prospective applicants’ interests, evaluate our outreach efforts, keep records, and group-message potential applicants with reminders and application advice.

If after completing the statement of interest you decide to apply to a fellowship program, you will fill out the full campus application in the respective program's online portal. Campus applications to most programs are due in late summer or early fall, usually 1-2 months before the national deadline. See application timelines for details.
