Regarding eligibility to apply for the Bonderman Travel Fellowship, there appears to be some confusion about the new GPA requirement for undergraduates. The 3.8 cumulative minimum GPA applies ONLY to certain undergraduates. It does not apply to graduate/professional students. The eligibility for graduate/professional students is:
1. that you be enrolled in a graduate/professional degree program during winter 2014 (on leave is not considered enrolled) and
2. you be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
THERE IS NO MINIMUM GPA REQUIREMENT FOR GRADUATE/PROFESSIONAL STUDENTS to be eligible to apply for the Bonderman Fellowship.
If you have questions, please go to the Bonderman website at: megray.
