EISENHOWER TRANSPORTATION FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
The EISENHOWER TRANSPORTATION FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation provides funding for the pursuit of Bachelors (junior and senior), Masters or Doctoral Degrees in transportation related fields. The program objectives are to attract the nation's brightest minds to the field of transportation; to enhance the careers of transportation professionals by encouraging them to seek advanced degrees; and to retain top talent in the transportation industry of the United States. The Dwight David Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship Program encompasses all modes of transportation.
Applicants must be enrolled in Universidad Ana G. Méndez – Gurabo, pursuing a degree in a full-time program and be enrolled for the entire academic year, must be in a transportation-related discipline (see page 2), must conduct ongoing research in one or more transportation-related disciplines, and should be planning to enter the transportation profession after completing their higher level education.
Applicants applying for the Eisenhower Hispanic Serving Institutions Fellowship must be at least an undergraduate junior (3rd year) or higher (including graduate students) at the start of semester Aug-Dec 2019.
Recipients can receive the fellowship a maximum of two consecutive years.
Foreign students who are not U.S. citizens must provide a certified copy of their student I-20 ID from the College / University or I-551 Permanent Resident Card that is issued by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (CIS).
 A Permanent Resident Card (Form I-551), commonly known as a Green Card, is evidence of your status as a lawful permanent resident with a right to live and work permanently in the United States. It also is evidence of your registration in accordance with United States immigration laws. Once students are accepted by the school, the University / College provides students a form known as a Certificate of Eligibility (SEVIS I-20).
 Transcripts must be sent from all institutions in which a degree was obtained. If you are applying as a Doctoral Fellowship, official transcripts must be sent from the institution where you obtained your Master’s Degree and your current institution. If you are applying for the Masters Fellowship, official transcripts must be sent from the institution where you obtained your Bachelors transcripts and your current institution.
