Matching Process Commitment Dissolution
The NASBS Match requires matching process applicants to accept a fellowship position if a match occurs. Additionally, the NASBS Match requires the applicant to start their fellowship in good faith (e.g. with the intent to complete the fellowship program) on the date specified by the program. In limited circumstances, the NASBS Match may grant a matching process commitment dissolution for programs and matched applicants who are not able to honor the binding commitment. Matched applicants and programs are not authorized to release each other from the binding matching process commitment. If a match occurs, an applicant cannot apply for, discuss, interview for, or accept an alternate position. Likewise, if a match occurs, a program cannot offer the position to a different candidate or applicant. An applicant or program wishing to withdraw from the match, must submit the following form to be reviewed by the NASBS Match Committee. The decision to grant or deny the matching process commitment dissolution is at the sole discretion of the NASBS Match Committee. To request a matching process commitment dissolution, complete this form in its entirety. It will be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Failure to provide all of the information requested will delay the processing of your request.
