The fellowship amount is typically between $1000 and $5000 per academic year (not including summer), and varies from year to year, depending on the number of qualified applicants, the availability of funds and unmet financial need.

  • Able to demonstrate financial need through submission of the AIGC Financial Need Form, and;
