All interested applicants will be required to submit an online application and submit the following supplementary materials:
- Curriculum Vitae
- Short essay of no more than 1,000 words, which provides an account of the applicant's academic pursuits, intellectual interests, extra-curricular activities, and the reasons for their desire to study at Harvard University; the essay should also explain the applicant's plan of study at Harvard and their future career plans.
- Certified copes of all academic transcripts.
- Two confidential letters of recommendation.
Citizens of Australia who are currently studying in or graduated from a university in another Knox-eligible country may be eligible to submit a Knox Fellowship application. This will be handled on a case-by-case basis and candidates are asked to contact the Committee on General Scholarships at Harvard University.
Candidates will be selected on the basis of academic excellence, strength of character, and potential for leadership in the applicant's field.
