The program offers three kinds of awards: Research fellowships, Dissertation fellowships, and Post-Doctoral fellowships.  To be eligible, applicants must be enrolled in or graduates of an accredited doctoral program.

The program is administered by a program coordinator and overseen by the Kaufman Fellowship Committee.
