Todai To Texas 2020 Application
Thank you for your interest in joining Todai To Texas! We appreciate your sparing time to fill out this form.

You might feel overwhelmed by a number of questions below, but each item will be considered carefully during the entire screening process. So we hope you do the best to express how attractive your projects are. Actually, the number of characters you can input is limited, and they will be much shorter than you may expect. So keep your sentences as simple as possible, and our recommendation is first to fill out all the fields roughly to see how much text can be entered, and then brush up your expressions later.

This form can be modified until the deadline. So you can (and recommended to) submit it in draft status. After submission, a link for editing will be sent by automatic reply email. Just click the link, and the form will be displayed with your draft texts filled. Because your draft will not be viewed by judges before the deadline, so don't hesitate to save a draft at your earliest convenience. You can also edit the form in collaboration with team members just by sharing the edit link (please be aware that if more than one person works at the same time, the content may be overwritten or lost).

If you do not receive automatic email even after 30 minutes, or if you have any other questions, please contact us (staff@todaitotexas.com).
