The Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans are open to
individuals who are either resident aliens, have been naturalized as U.S.
citizens or whose parents are both naturalized citizens. The fellowships
provide grants for up to two years of graduate study in the United States.
The fellow receives an annual maintenance grant of $20,000 and a tuition
grant of one-half the tuition cost of the U.S. graduate program attended
by the fellow. Thirty fellowships will be awarded each year. A fellow may
pursue a graduate degree in any professional field (e.g., engineering,
medicine, law, social work, etc.) or scholarly discipline in the arts,
humanities, social sciences, and sciences. The applicant 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 eligible for the competition. Applicants must not be older
than thirty years of age as of November 1, 2004. Visit
