Ford Foundation Predoctoral Fellowships seek to increase the diversity of the nation's college and university faculties by augmenting their ethnic and racial diversity, maximizing the educational benefits of diversity, and increasing the number of professors who can and will use diversity as a resource for enriching the education of all students. Eligible applicants are U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or DACA grantees who are enrolled or enrolling in a research-based (dissertation required) doctoral program requiring at least three years for completion at the start of the fellowship and wish to pursue a career in teaching at the university or college level. The Ford Foundation offers a stipend of $24,000.
Applications for the Ford Predoctoral Fellowship are due Dec. 14. The deadline for feedback on drafts from the National Fellowships Program is Dec. 4. If you are interested in applying, contact Dr. Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org and visit the National Fellowships Program website.
