The Agora Selection Process


The selection process for becoming an Agora Scholar is quite simple.

Each year, 10 seniors will be selected as Agora Scholars.

Any member of the community may nominate a current senior using the forms on our site. Nominations are not necessary to apply, but will be considered during the selection process.

To apply, you simply download and complete the application and email it to swarthmoreagora@gmail.com by March 31st. With the application, you must include a sample of your project in PDF format that you feel well represents it.

Beginning March 31st, a selection committee of students and faculty will review all applications. They will select finalists who will have an opportunity for a brief interview prior to final selections on April 14th. From these finalists, ten winners will be chosen.
