Each year, the Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans program awards $90,000 fellowship awards to selected undocumented students (with or without DACA) who are pursuing graduate school across various fields throughout the country. On July 25th, the PD Soros program and My Undocumented Life partnered to co-host a webinar dedicated to reviewing the application process and materials for undocumented applicants in particular. You can now view a recording of the full webinar here:
The webinar includes information about the history of the fellowship program, the alumni community, funding, selection criteria, and the application process. You can also hear specific advice and tips for preparing the application as an undocumented student. The webinar features the experiences and advice from three amazing PD Soros fellows: Norma who is a 2018 Paul & Daisy Soros Fellow and she just recently graduated from Rice with her MBA. She also has an MPP from the Harvard Kennedy School; Sati who is a JD/PhD student at Yale Law and UC Berkeley and a 2018 Paul & Daisy Soros Fellow; and Pia who is a PhD student studying cell biology at Duke University and is a 2020 Paul & Daisy Soros Fellow.
If you are undocumented and pursuing graduate school, definitely check out the webinar as you prepare your application for the PD Soros Fellowship program. The fellowship is open to DACA recipients and any immigrant who has graduated from both high school and college in the United States, regardless of immigration status, and it’s a good fit if you’re pursuing a master’s program, a PhD, an MD, a JD, or another graduate program.
