Deadline to apply for the SOROS Fellowship for New Americans

Posted by on Nov 1, 2018 in | 0 comments

Applications are now open for the 2019 SOROS Fellowship for New Americans!

Every year, the Paul & Daisy SOROS Fellowship for New Americans supports 30 new Americans who are immigrants or the children of immigrants pursuing graduate degrees in the United States.

Each fellowship supports one to two years of graduate study in any field and in any advanced degree-granting program in the United States. Each award is for up to $25,000 in stipend support, as well as 50 percent of required tuition and fees, up to $20,000 per year, for one to two years. Awardees may not defer the first year of the fellowship funding.

To be eligible, you must be a New American who is 30 years old or younger as of the application deadline. You must also be planning on starting or continuing an eligible graduate degree program full-time in the United States in the 2019–2020 academic year.

Fellows are required to attend the annual fall conference in New York City, which is fully paid for by the program. The director or deputy director of the fellowship program will visit each fellow at his/her respective campus during the first fall semester of the fellowship. Fellows must remain in good standing in their program during their fellowship and submit an exit report at the conclusion of their fellowship.

The competition is merit-based. Selection criteria emphasize creativity, originality, initiative and sustained accomplishment. Unsuccessful applicants may reapply in subsequent years if they are still eligible.

Get a head start on your application before the deadline on Thursday, November 1, 2018.
