The Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans
Deadline: November 1
* You are eligible if you are a “Green Card” holder, OR if you are a naturalized citizen, OR if you have two parents who are naturalized citizens as of the date of your application.
* You must not be older than 31 as of November 8.
* You must either have a bachelor’s degree or be in her/his final year of undergraduate study. Those who have a bachelor’s degree may already be pursuing graduate study and may receive Fellowship support to continue that study. Individuals who are in the third, or subsequent, year of study in the same graduate program are not, however, eligible for this competition. Students who have received a master’s degree in a program and are continuing for a doctoral degree in the same program are considered to have been in the same program from the time they began their work on their master’s degree.
Each year the Fellow receives a maintenance grant of $20,000 (paid in two installments) and a tuition grant of one-half the tuition cost of the U.S. graduate program attended by the Fellow. The purpose of The Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans is to provide opportunities for continuing generations of able and accomplished New Americans to achieve leadership in their chosen fields. The Program is established in recognition of the contributions New Americans have made to American life and in gratitude for the opportunities the United States has afforded the donors and their family. Recipients of this competitive award (thirty fellowships will be awarded) have, given their ages and backgrounds, shown extraordinary creativity, accomplishment, and commitment to the principles of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
