Eligibility will be determined on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the selection committee.
After an internal selection process, each participating institution nominates two candidates. Nominations are then sent to an independent selection committee, which chooses the finalists.
You have been chosen by the selection committee to receive the award, pending approval by Revson’s Board of Directors. Generally, all finalists are approved.
The Foundation awards up to eight fellowships every year.
Fellows may choose to begin their fellowship any time between July 1st and October 1st in the year it is awarded.
