A complete application consists of the following:

Your statement of purpose should be no more than two pages, double-spaced, in 12-point font. It should outline your goals, the nature of your project or the program or organization you are planning to join. You should also include funding that you are applying for or have received. Please include information on how you might develop your project in concert with Brandeis alumni and friends – and what steps you might take to make those connections.

Notice of acceptance into an internship program or placement, study abroad program, research, or volunteer program

One letter of recommendation

Note that this letter can be a duplicate copy of a reference letter already written for you by a Brandeis professor for some other purpose. However, this letter should be from a Brandeis professor.
