Due to precautionary measures surrounding ongoing COVID-19 pandemic concerns, a majority of the 2020 residency awards were cancelled and deferred to 2021. As a result, KHN will NOT be conducting an open application call for 2021 session one residencies—there will be NO September 1st application deadline in 2020. Status of the March 1, 2021 application cycle and deadline will be confirmed once deferred awards are rescheduled and capacity for additional award considerations for the 2nd half of 2021 is determined. This will be announced by December 2020.
