The Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans program offers graduate fellowships to green card holders, naturalized citizens, DACA designees, refugees, asylees, and the children of immigrants. The program's goal is to honor the contributions of immigrants and the children of immigrants to the United States.
Applicants must be no older than 31, and they must be a senior or a first or second year graduate student. Fellowships offer two years of support, with a $25,000 annual stipend.
The Graduate College Office of External Fellowships is hosting an information session on October 3 that will feature Yulian Ramos, Deputy Director of the Soros Fellowship program. Ms. Ramos will offer an overview of the program and present guidance on how to prepare a strong application.
Applications are due November 1.
This past year, Illinois graduate student Daniel Najera was awarded a Soros Fellowship! See details here.
If you have any questions about the fellowship or the information session, please contact Ken Vickery, Director of Fellowships, at email@example.com.
