Submit the contact information section of the application. After submitting the information, a Future Generations Regional Assistant Academic Director will contact you to set up an interview. These interviews may be in person, online or by telephone.  Do not wait until after the interview to continue your application.

Submit a completed application. The Admission's committee will determine if you meet the criteria for admission. If you meet the admission's criteria, you have passed phase one of the process. Future Generations will then request additional information, such as a financial disclosure and official transcripts. 

Prove Evidence of Community: You must be endorsed by a community to participate in this academic program. In all instances, applicants must have an active base within a community. If community involvement and support are evident, you have passed phase two of the application. We may interview one or more members of the community where you intend to apply your learning and research. 

Financial Plan and Scholarship Details: Phase three is the Scholarship Committee's decision based on its review of your financial disclosure. If financial assistance is needed and requested, Future Generations will work closely with you and your community to ensure that your merit and need match available resources for this program of applied graduate studies.  If you are a US based student, you may submit the FASFA as a part of the financial aid process. 

A Signed Agreement: Finally, phase four includes a signed agreement between you and Future Generations to the terms for delivering and covering the costs of this applied graduate education.
