The Thomas J. Watson Fellowship offers college graduates of "unusual promise" a year of independent, purposeful exploration and travel -- in international settings new to them -- to enhance their capacity for resourcefulness, imagination, openness, and leadership and to foster their humane and effective participation in the world community.

We will announce the awards by March 15.

The stipend for the fellowship year is $28,000 ($38,000 for fellows accompanied by a spouse or dependent child).
