2018 Application (Students Entering Fall 2018)

  • Welcome to the Blount Scholars Program Online Application. We conduct admissions on a rolling basis as long as seats remain in the program. So while there is technically no deadline to apply, we encourage interested students to submit an application as soon as possible. Students who apply by January 5th are eligible to participate in Blount's on-campus interview event (though they can also elect to interview remotely or on-campus at another time).

    Because the application form has no provision for saving your work, you may want to write your answers in a word processing program and then copy them into the form fields. Not trying to get in your biness or anything, just a thought.

    The application has three sections:

    • Section One - Pedestrian but nonetheless necessary biographical data--name, contact information, GPA & test scores, etc.
    • Section Two - In which we try to get to know the person behind the myth. This might include: querying you about your preferences, passions, prejudices, and peeves; asking you to inhabit hypothetical scenarios or imaginary worlds; having you write a little poem; requiring you to translate a prose passage from Iriquois into Urdu.

      Ok, the thing about the translation was a gag. We do ask you to solve some differential equations, though.

      Ok, the differential equations bit was a gag too. Loosen up, will you?

    • Section Three - Wherein we wax curious about how you see yourself fitting into the Blount Program.
    Now get busy. And remember: if you're not having fun doing this application, you're living wrong.
