The application process to become a Balfour-Hesburgh Scholar starts when new first-year students who have been accepted to the University of Notre Dame are invited to apply.
The Notre Dame Office of Admissions sends notifications to accepted students in late March/early April. Students who plan to attend Notre Dame should return their confirmations to Admissions as soon as possible.
BHSP draws from the list of accepted and confirmed students who meet the eligibility criteria and then sends invitations to apply to the program.
Our application schedule for the 2017–18 academic year is:
March/April — Admissions acceptance letters sent to students.
Mid-April — BHSP staff will send letters of invitation to eligible students.
May 1 — Online applications must be submitted by 5:00 pm EST. Late applications will not be considered.
May 1 — High school transcripts and high school profiles must be received.
By June 1 — BHSP decision letters emailed/mailed to applicants.
