> Jacob K. Javits Fellowships Program
The Javits Fellowships are awarded to graduate students pursuing the study of the arts, humanities, and social sciences. Individuals are selected on the basis of demonstrated achievement, financial need, and exceptional promise. Recipients receive a stipend for full time study or research. The Javits fellowship award consists of a stipend for personal expenses and an institutional payment to be accepted by the institution on behalf of the Fellow (for up to the lesser of 48 months or the completion of their degree).
General Program Requirements:
In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must be an undergraduate student about to enter graduate school, or a graduate student who has not yet completed the first year of graduate study and who intends to pursue a doctoral or master's degree, if the master's degree is the terminal or highest degree awarded in a field. The selected fields of study supported by the Javits Fellowship Program are available for your review.
You must also be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident of the U.S., or a citizen of any one of the Freely Associated States.
