Admission into the Institute is by online application only. Approximately equal numbers of management, engineering, and liberal arts students are selected for each ILTM class, limited to 24 students annually.

When to Apply

Applications will be accepted from Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2016 - Friday, Jan. 6, 2017.


Application Materials

As part of the online application process, you will need to provide the names of two faculty members at Bucknell that can speak on your behalf. These faculty do not need to write a recommendation for you; rather they should be able to comment on your work quality and work ethic should this input be necessary.

Additionally, you will need to prepare three short essays similar to these sample essay questions from previous years:

  1. What work and/or leadership experience have you had? (fewer than 500 words)
  2. Given what you know about the various topics and issues addressed in the ILTM program, what would you bring to the program and what do you expect to get out of the program? (fewer than 500 words)
  3. It is the year 2034. You are working in an advanced technology firm employing scientific advances not envisioned in the year 2014. What is the business of your firm? What is your title? What is the most critical problem facing you and how do you plan to solve it? (fewer than 1000 words)
