Given that the University is required to nominate its candidates, there is an office application deadline and evaluation process. The University can nominate up to four applicants who have been enrolled exclusively at University Park and one additional for transfers (from other Penn State campuses or different colleges).
You must submit a completed application through the Goldwater online application system. The office will share the submitted materials with the interview committee. Afterward, you will be notified if you've been nominated or not. Nominees will work with the office to revise their materials prior to final submission.
