Welcome to the Roothbert Fund application site

Please click on "Sign Up" if you are a new applicant to the fund.

Applications are due on February 1, 2018 at 11:59 PM (US/Eastern) with no exceptions.


VERY IMPORTANT — BEFORE YOU CONSIDER APPLYING: Please note that applicant interviews are scheduled on extremely short notice in March and are typically held in New York, New Haven, Philadelphia and Washington, DC.  The Fund will not pay any transportation charges or other costs of applicants who are invited to be interviewed.  No grant is awarded by the Fund without a personal interview, and submitting an application does not guarantee being invited for an interview, and being invited for an interview does not guarantee a scholarship.

Awards are announced in late April. Grants are mailed to the grantees' institutions in August.

Please see our frequently asked questions (FAQ) page.

Please login with the user name and password you created for your original, new application.  If you did not originally apply online, click on "Sign Up" and indicate that you are a "Renewal Applicant" under "Category".
