It’s recommended that you access this page using Google Chrome, download/save the PDF form to your computer or network drive, and then open it with Adobe Reader (free download) to fill it out. We do not recommend using any web browser to open the form and fill it out directly on the web as most have issues with fillable PDF forms and the data is lost when sending via email. If this occurs, we'll request you complete the form again.

MAC users: Do not use the preview program pre-installed on your device to fill in the PDF form. Adobe Reader (free download) is the only program that will allow you to work with the form properly.

Completion of the form is required to schedule an appointment. If you have questions, please contact Dr. Karen Wachsmuth, associate director, International Fellowships, at
