Javits Fellowships Program - Canceled for 2012!
This program provides fellowships to students of superior academic ability—selected on the basis of demonstrated achievement, financial need, and exceptional promise—to undertake study at the doctoral and Master of Fine Arts level in selected fields of arts, humanities, and social sciences.
Undergraduate students about to enter graduate school and graduate students who have not yet completed their first year of graduate study and who intend to pursue a doctoral or master's degree, if the master's degree is the terminal or highest degree awarded in an approved field, may apply.
Awards are made for one year and are renewable for three additional years contingent upon the student making satisfactory progress toward the degree and continued congressional funding for the program
Subject to the availability of funds, a fellow receives the Javits fellowship annually for up to the lesser of 48 months or the completion of their degree. The fellowship consists of an institutional payment (accepted by the institution of higher education in lieu of all tuition and fees for the fellow) and a stipend (based on the fellow's financial need as determined by the measurements of the Federal Student Assistance Processing System. In fiscal year 2011, the maximum stipend will be $43,755, and the institutional payment will be $13,755. These figures are estimates.
This program is on hold for the 2012 competition due to a lack of funding. Please check back in 2012 to see if funding will be available for 2013.
