The Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans

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 and to partake in the American dream. Fellows must have shown potential in the fields for which they seek further education; the capacity for creativity, persistence and work; and the commitment to the values of the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights, which protect the American dream.
 
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, this program provides $20,000 per year for up to two years of graduate study for New Americans defined as: (1) a resident alien; (2) a naturalized U.S. citizen; or (3) the child of parents who are both naturalized citizens.
 
The Program is looking for individuals who have shown creativity and initiative in triumphing over difficult circumstances. Applicants need to be ready to begin their graduate studies, or in the first two years of their graduate program. Thirty awards are given annually. Application deadline in June of each year.
