Jacob K. Javits Fellowship
The Department of Education, Javitz fellowships program provides financial assistance to students who have demonstrated superior academic ability and achievement, exceptional promise, and financial need to undertake graduate study leading to a doctoral degree or a master's degree in selected fields of study of the arts, humanities, and social sciences. Subject to availability of funds, a fellow receives the Javits fellowship annually for up to the lesser of 48 months or the completion of the degree. The fellowship consists of an institutional payment (accepted by the institution of higher education in lieu of all tuition and fees for the fellow) and a stipend (based on the fellow's financial need as determined by the measurements of the Federal Student Assistance Processing System). In fiscal year 2005, the institutional payment was $11,822 and the maximum stipend was $30,000.
