Every year some 80-100 students who are beginning graduate school receive Javits Fellowships. These fellowships are administered by the U. S. Department of Education and provide stipends of up to $30,000 per year. Javits Fellows are eligible for up to four years of support. Fellowships are available for most major areas of study in the humanities, arts and social sciences. A grade point of 3.25 or higher is recommended. The campus deadline is September 24, 2010 (the Program deadline is September 30, 2010). Interested seniors should make an appointment with Dean Haslem as soon as possible. Applications and information may be downloaded from the Javits website.
