Applicants are notified of their acceptance prior to preregistration for fall semester.

The letter of application should include the following and be entered here:

  • A brief statement describing why you are interested in becoming a Periclean Scholar.

  • A written response to the following prompt. Please limit your response to 1000 words.


Following receipt of your materials, you will be contacted for a personal interview with Dr. Steve Braye, Mentor for the Class of 2018 Periclean Scholars. Please upload your application here, and have the letter of recommendation emailed to Dr. Braye at, or through campus mail to Campus Box 2675. 

Note: As soon as you decide to apply, please contact Dr. Braye so your interview can be scheduled as early as possible. If you have any questions, feel free to contact him at
