Ford Foundation Diversity Fellowships

September 18, 2016

The Ford Foundation Diversity Fellowships attempt to increase diversity in college and university-level teaching while maximizing the educational benefits of diversity. Each year, the Ford Foundation offers approximately 60 predoctoral fellowships ($20,000 per year for up to three years), 35 dissertation fellowships ($21,000 for one year), and 20 postdoctoral fellowships ($40,000 for one year).

Fellowships are awarded to students who demonstrate excellence, commitment to diversity, and the desire to teach at the college or university level.

Eligibility: Candidates must be a US citizen or national who are committed to a career in teaching at the college or university level. They must be enrolled or plan to enroll in an eligible research-based program leading to a Ph.D or Sc.D at a US institution and must not have previously earned a doctoral degree. May apply as undergraduates in their senior year simultaneous with applications to graduate programs.

Deadline: November 17, 2016
