Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans honor and support the graduate educations of 30 New Americans (including permanent residents or naturalized citizens; adoptees who were born abroad; asylees or refugees; current or past DACA status; and children of naturalized citizen parents) each year. Fellows can study in any degree-granting program in any field at any university in the United States. Selection is based on creativity, originality, initiative, and sustained accomplishment.
The fellowship provides up to $90,000 over two years – divided between tuition and living expenses.
Institutional endorsement is not required.
