The application for the 2021 Fellowships is now open through the deadline on October 29, 2020 at 2:00 pm ET. Applications are not reviewed on a rolling basis. All eligibility requirements apply to the status of the applicant ("you") as of October 29, 2020. If named a finalist, you will be required to provide documentation of your eligibility.

To be eligible for the Class of 2021, you must be a New American who is 30 or younger as of the application deadline, and who is planning on starting or continuing an eligible graduate degree program full-time in the United States in the 2021-2022 academic year.
