HOW TO APPLY

Because degree fellows are involved in programs at the EWC, as well as in advanced degree work at UH, they have obligations to both institutions. This relationship between the EWC and UH is unique, and clarification is needed regarding the EWC application process.

Fellowships are awarded annually in an international competition. To apply for study beginning in the 2021-2022 academic year, the deadline to apply online is December 1, 2020

If you are not already enrolled as a classified graduate student at UH Mānoa, you must apply to the university for the following fall semester by December 1.  The University of Hawai‘i launches their online application system (https://manoa.hawaii.edu/graduate/) on August 1 each year for admissions the following year. To ensure timely processing of your EWC application, supporting documents for both your UH admissions office and department applications must be completed by January 10, regardless of whether the UH departmental deadline falls after that date.
