The Application Process
Students from CMC and the other Claremont Colleges apply to become Robert Day Scholars in the fall of their junior year. The application process consists of selection to advance through three phases. Note that selection of Scholars in the Class of 2013 has been moved forward from the timing of previous years to support academic and career development planning. Students studying off-campus are welcome to apply and alternative selection efforts will be made as required.
