Postbaccalaureate Fellowship Program Eligibility Requirements

This program is designed for recent college graduates who earned their bachelor's degree within the past two years prior to the date they begin the program. For instance, the 2019 class of Postbaccalaureate Fellows will consist of graduates of the class of 2017, 2018, or 2019. Students currently enrolled in a master's, doctoral, medical, or similar postgraduate degree granting program are ineligible to apply. Similarly, any applicant who has already earned a postgraduate degree is ineligible to apply.

Participants in the program also must be able to legally work in the U.S. via citizenship, permanent residency, or optional practical training. NOTE: Only international students who can use optional practical training (OPT) work authorization can apply. Similar programs that fulfill the work visa requirement will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
