The Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans is a $90,000 graduate school fellowship that is open to undocumented students (with or without DACA) who graduated from high school and college in the US and are now pursuing graduate school.
As you prepare your application, we invite you to join the program’s Deputy Director Yulian Ramos and the Communications Director Nikka Landau, as well as recent Paul & Daisy Soros Fellow Norma Torres Mendoza and current fellows Joel Sati and Maria Pia, and MUL Founder (Carolina) for a webinar information session focused on DACA recipients and undocumented applicants. The session will cover the history of the fellowship, the alumni community, funding, eligibility, selection criteria, and the application process, and there will be plenty of time for Q&A.
The webinar will take place on Saturday July 25th at 1pm EST/10am PST

Note: “The Fellowship is open to DACA recipients and any immigrant who graduated from both high school and college in the US, regardless of status. In addition, naturalized citizens and green card holders are eligible, as well as US-born citizens who are the children of two immigrants. If you are applying in the fall of 2020, then you must be planning on being enrolled in graduate school full-time for the full 2021-2022 academic school year and you must be 30 or younger as of the application deadline (October 29, 2020). The Fellowship supports all types of accredited degrees, including MBAs, PhDs, JDs, MDs, and master’s degrees of all types. Online programs, part-time programs, and executive programs are not eligible.”
