Application Process Overview - 1st Time BSI Scholars
Review application questions and prepare your responses.
Student Information – Application Section A (filled out online by student)
Student Questions – Application Section B (uploaded to DocuSign by student)
Download Word document template, type up your responses, then upload that file when you fill out your application.
Mentor/Lab Questions – Application Section C (uploaded to DocuSign by mentor)
These questions should be completed by the mentor in collaboration with the prospective BSI Scholar. As a professional courtesy, start early to give your mentor time to prepare their portion of the application. Download Word document template. The mentor will upload these responses to DocuSign.
Access the BSI Scholars application by clicking on the "Apply Now" button at the bottom of this page.
The email addresses you enter determine who receives the form, so ensure your mentor is an eligible person and the email you enter for them is correct.
Verify the information entered is correct, and click the "Submit" button. You will immediately receive an email from DocuSign to access your application. SAVE THIS EMAIL.
You will receive an email from DocuSign to access your application. This email will contain an access code. Save this email, as you'll need the link if you want to save progress and return to your application later.
If you do not complete your application in one sitting, you can save your progress and return later to finish and sign your application.
To save and return later:
A. Click "Other Actions" at the top right of the page:
B. Select "Finish Later" in the drop down menu.
C. You can use the button "Resume Signing" in the access code email you received to return to your application.
When you have completed your portion of the application, sign it and click "Finish." This will then automatically send your application to the mentor you identified in Step 2. Your mentor will receive an email from DocuSign, and they can follow instructions in that email to access your application.
You will receive an email from DocuSign when your mentor has finished their portion of the application. The application is then complete.
