    Abstract: The Jacob K. Javits Fellowship Program is authorized by 
Title VII, Part A, Subpart 1 of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as 
amended, and provides up to four years of financial assistance to 
students to undertake graduate study at the doctoral and Master of Fine 
Arts level in selected fields of arts, humanities, and social sciences. 
Fellows are selected on the basis of (1) superior academic ability 
demonstrated by their achievements and exceptional promise; and (2) 
financial need. The amounts of new and continuing awards are based on a 
student's financial need as determined by the Title IV, Part F needs 
analysis system. Each individual fellow's need must be assessed and 
reported each year, along with a continuing fellow's academic progress 
as determined by the institution. This collection is completed annually 
by grantee institutions to report on the fellows' progress and levels 
of financial need for the next academic year. The Department of 
Education uses this data to calculate fellowship amounts and the total 
grant amount sent to each institution for each fiscal year.
