Ford Foundation Predoctoral Fellowship

Ford Foundation Fellowships seek to increase the ethnic and racial diversity of the nation's college and university faculties by 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. Those who use pedagogy that incorporates minorities or who are members of an underrepresented group in the American professorate are preferred. The Ford Foundation Predoctoral Fellowship Program provides fellows with a stipend of $24,000 for three years of study toward a research-based doctoral degree.

Open to graduating seniors who will enroll in graduate school in fall 2019 or first- or second-year graduate students who are currently enrolled in a research-based (dissertation required) PhD or ScD program in an eligible discipline at a not-for-profit U.S. institution of higher education.

Contact Dr. Barry ( in the National Fellowships Program immediately if you are interested in applying.
