If interested, you should start planning your application as early as possible. New application material is usually available approximately 3 months in advance of the Thouron Award deadline, and you will need to take into account what research you will need to do to help you to decide which programme you wish to undertake at Penn. Most applicants usually start this process during late summer prior to the deadline. Please also ensure you take into account the timescales involved in completing any standardized testing you are required to undertake as part of your Penn admissions application.
