2017-2018 Priya Haji Fellows must be college graduates of the class of 2016 or 2017 and be eligible to work in the United States without sponsorship. They must not be on a student visa or on another visa, or in the country under other circumstances that would prevent them from receiving the PHF stipend.
Students with all majors and educational interests are encouraged to apply. We will not accept applications from students who are graduating in December 2017 or who are currently enrolled in graduate programs. All participants will receive a monthly stipend of $6,000.
We will accept applications for the Priya Haji Fellowship on a rolling basis beginning October 1, 2016, through March 15, 2017.
We will begin making matches with companies in our portfolio as soon as we can. Because we expect that applicants could be speaking with interested companies soon after their application has been received, we encourage all applicants to submit their applications as early as possible.
