Jacob K. Javits Fellowship Program

Jacob K. Javits Fellowship Program

The Javits Fellowship Program provides fellowships to U.S. citizens who are graduating seniors from undergraduate institutions.  Selection is based on superior academic ability that are selected on the basis of demonstrated achievement, financial need, and exceptional promise. 

Through these fellowships, students are able to undertake study at the doctoral and Masters of Fine Arts level in the fields of arts, humanities, and social sciences.

Awards are given in one-year increments and are renewable for up to four years.

Luther's nomination is required, and the application to apply is typically around September 30. Contact Terry Sparkes, Director of College Honors, if interested.

Note:  Funding for the Javits Fellowship program was cut from the federal congressional budget for this year.  Therefore, applications will not be accepted until further notice.
