Sponsored by The Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans

Funding for all types of full-time graduate and professional degrees in law, humanities, medicine, the social sciences, arts, writing, policy, and more. The Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans is the premier graduate school fellowship for immigrants and children of immigrants in the United States. 

Founded by immigrants, The Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans supports outstanding New Americans—immigrants and children of immigrants—pursuing graduate school in the United States. With the goal of highlighting the many ways that New Americans contribute to society and culture, the Fellowship supports 30 individuals every year with up to $90,000 in funding per Fellow. 

In addition to receiving up to $90,000 for the graduate program of their choice, each new Fellow joins the lifelong community of past recipients. The active alumni network includes artists, designers, architects, directors, writers, composers, and musicians, in addition to doctors, lawyers, public health experts, professors, engineers, and entrepreneurs. 

Eligible New Americans include green card holders, naturalized citizens, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) recipients, individuals born abroad who graduated from both high school and college in the United States, and the US-born children of two immigrants.

“The Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowship liberated me from the traditional path I was expected to follow,” said 2009 Paul & Daisy Soros Fellow Shantanu Gaur, the cofounder and CEO at Allurion Technologies. “Unburdened from debt and energized by peers who were taking the road less traveled, I have been able to thrive.”
