Appendix A: Nomination Caps

2018 Nomination Caps

Nomination Caps are determined by program. The program's average number of awards for the past three years constitutes the base number. The bonus number is one-half of the program's three year average acceptances. The base and bonus numbers are added together then multiplied by 75% to determine the cap. Data from the University Fellowship and Graduate Enrichment Fellowship competitions are included in the calculations; however, the cap applies only to the University Fellowship program. Each program is guaranteed a minimum cap of 3. The number of Allotted Waivers is 50% of the adjusted cap or 4 whichever is greater.
