Their reasons for doing so were several. They wished to 'give back' to the country that had afforded them and their children such great opportunities and felt a fellowship program was an appropriate vehicle. They also felt that assisting young New Americans at a critical point in their education was an unmet need. Finally, they wished to signal all Americans that the contributions of New Americans to the quality of life in this country have been manifold. Central to an understanding of the entire Program is an understanding of the donors, Paul and Daisy Soros. Assisting young New Americans in pursuing their life chances in this country is an autobiography of their lives - where friends, family and associates helped them as they built a life in this new land.A New American is an individual who (1) is a resident alien; i.e., holds a Green Card, or, (2) has been naturalized as a U.S. citizen, or (3) is the child of two parents who are both naturalized citizens; Intended to support individuals who will continue to regard the United States as their principal residence and focus of national identity; must either have a bachelor's degree or be in her/his final year of undergraduate study; must not be older than thirty years of ageMaintenance grant of $20,000 (paid in two installments) and a tuition grant of one-half the tuition cost of the U.S. graduate program attended by the Fellow (up to a maximum of $16,000 per academic year)Late October-Early November Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America Foundation (PhRMA): Fellowships for Predoctoral Training in Pharmaceuticshttp://www.phrmafoundation.org/awards/pharmaceutics/Sciencepharmaceutics, biopharmaceutics, pharmacology, technology, researchAnnual award to increase the number of well-trained investigators in pharmacological research (excludes projects that seek to extend or develop the proprietary value of certain drugs).
