Initial review of all applications 


Applicants are invited to interview. Applicants should be prepared for an interview with FHI 360 staff, U.S. Embassy staff, and a TL alumn during the month of January.

Only applicants who have passed the interview phase will be supported in taking standardized testing (TOEFL, SAT).


Applicants are notified if they will be forwarded for consideration by partner universities.   Students complete the TOEFL and SAT exams during this period, if they have not previously.


Applicants will begin being notified of conditional offers at partner universities. Notifications will be on a rolling basis. 


Applicants with conditional offers with low TOEFL or IELTs scores, are offered the opportunity for an 8-week online English intensive. 


Accepted applicants attend pre-departure orientation and leadership workshop sessions. Incoming Tomorrow’s Leaders depart home for travel to universities.
