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 will send notification to accepted students on April 1. Students who plan to attend Notre Dame should return their confirmations to Admissions as soon as possible.
BHSP will draw from the list of accepted and confirmed students that meet the eligibility criteria to send invitations to apply to the program.
Our application schedule for the 2015–16 academic year is:
April 1 — Admissions acceptance letters sent to students.
April 21 — 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.
May 25 — BHSP decision letters emailed/mailed to applicants.
