Tips & Timelines

Application Tips:

  • Before you start your CCT application, determine if this unique Master's program is right for you. Make use of the resources CCT offers to get the answers to your questions.
  • CCTers are a diverse group of individual thinkers. Use your application to tell us about the special combination of interests, skills, and passions you would bring to this community. Consider if a video statement would be a helpful addition.
  • CCTers constantly grapple with complex ideas during spirited discussion with people very different from them. Check that in your application, reviewers will be able to see evidence of your aptitude for this kind of challenging environment.
  • Scholarships for graduate students are very competitive. Research all funding options available to you, not just CCT scholarships and fellowships. See Tuition & Scholarships for some links to start your research.
