Javits Fellowships - #84.170

A recipient is entitled to use the fellowship in a graduate program at any accredited institution of higher education in which the recipient may decide to enroll. For each fellowship awarded, the institution receives an institutional allowance determined in accordance with the statutory formula in Section 703 of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended. The student receives a stipend set at the level of support based on that provided by the National Science Foundation graduate fellowships. No stipend may exceed the Fellow's demonstrated level of need according to measurements of need set forth in Part F of Title IV of the Higher Education Act. An individual receives payments only during the periods that he or she maintains satisfactory progress in his or her program of study and devotes essentially full time to study or research in the field in which the fellowship was awarded.

Regulations were published in the Federal Register on January 19, 1998. OMB Circular No. A-87 applies to this program.

Criteria are established by the Fellowship Board. Fellowship applications are evaluated based on scholarly achievements, including Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores on the general test only if applying in the humanities, social sciences, multi-or interdisciplinary fields of art history or creative writing; awards; honors; narratives describing personal goals; and three letters of recommendation.
