The Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans supports immigrants or children of immigrants who are pursuing graduate studies in the United States. Each fellowship supports two years of graduate study in any field and in any degree-granting program in the United States. The Fellowship program seeks students who have demonstrated creativity, originality, and initiative in one or more aspects of their lives.
NB: The October 1 campus deadline is a courtesy deadline for applicants who wish to receive advisement on their Soros applications. Nomination is technically not required, although the high level of competition here makes advisement useful.
