All application materials, including your nomination form, will be considered by the Torch Scholars Selection Committee.
February 15: Priority deadline for financial aid paperwork. Students should complete the FAFSA ( www.fafsa.ed.gov) in order to be considered for the Torch Scholars program as well as other federal and institutional financial assistance.
February, 2009: Finalists will be notified and asked to complete Northeastern’s Comprehensive Leadership Assessment prior to their interview day.
March 2009: Torch Scholars Program decisions are announced.

Students who are alternates for the Torch Scholars Program will receive final decisions no later than May 15.
