The purpose of the Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans is to provide opportunities for continuing generations of able and accomplished New Americans to achieve leadership in their chosen fields. The Program is established in recognition of the contributions New Americans have made to American life, and in gratitude for the opportunities the United States has afforded the donors and their family.

In addition to demonstrated capacity to undertake advanced academic work, a successful candidate will meet these criteria: creativity, originality, and initiative, demonstrated in any area of life; accomplishment, activity that requires drive and sustained effort; commitment to the values expressed in the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights, which includes activity in support of human rights and the rule of law, in opposition to unwarranted encroachment on personal liberty, and in advancing the responsibilities of citizenship in a free society.

Eligible applicants are those with green cards, naturalized citizens, or who have two parents who are naturalized citizens. Fellows may pursue a graduate degree in any professional field (law, medicine, social work) or scholarly discipline, and in the fine and performing arts.
