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 25% of the adjusted cap or 2 whichever is greater.
