The SREI Board has approved this year’s guidelines for common application deadline, interview invitation, and acceptance of interview date for fellowship candidates. This is the second year that this program has taken place. Last year’s process was very popular among programs and was especially so among the candidates. Last year the majority of programs participated and I hope that as many as absolutely possible will do so again this year. The SREI Board thanks you for streamlining this process on behalf of our future trainees.
Guideline summary for 2021:
Monday May 3, 2021: (12PM CST): Deadline for receiving applications.
Friday June 4, 2021: Single notification date (All REI fellowships send out “first wave” notifications)
Tuesday June 8, 2021 (12PM CST): Initial deadline for applicants to accept or decline interview date. Additional invites can be sent at this time.
Friday, June 11, 2021: Deadline for alerting invited candidates as to which interview date they are given (including option of wait listing them if they cannot make the offered slot) as well as informing ALL candidates of their status (i.e. invited for interview; wait-listed; or rejected). No decisions should be made prior to June 8th deadline for receipt of candidate responses.
Please let me know if you have any questions about this year’s interview process (firstname.lastname@example.org). Separately, no decision has been made about in-person versus remote interviewing for this year. This is obviously depends on the course of the pandemic. The SREI Board is paying very close attention to ongoing trends and hopefully can provide some guidance in the near future.
