provides opportunities for continuing generations of able and accomplished New
Americans to achieve leadership in their chosen fields. The fellowships are grants for
up to two years of graduate study in the United States.
A “New American” is an
individual who 1) is a resident alien (i.e., holds a Green Card); or 2) has been
naturalized as a U.S. citizen; or 3) is the child of two parents who are both naturalized
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, however, eligible for the competition. Students who have received a master’s
degree in a program and are studying for a doctoral degree in the same program are
considered to have been in the same program from the time they began their work on
their master’s degree.
