Event description

Description

Through its Fellowship Programs, the Ford Foundation seeks to increase the diversity of the nation's college and university faculties by increasing their ethnic and racial diversity, to maximize the educational benefits of diversity, and to increase the number of professors who can and will use diversity as a resource for enriching the education of all students.

The Graduate College in correlation with the Lorraine W. Frank Office of National Scholarships Advisement in Barrett, the Honors College, and the School of Social Transformation faculty, who have been standing reviewers for the Ford Fellowship, invite you to participate in an intensive writing and review workshop for applicants that have advanced to the final stages of their application drafts. To participate in this workshop, you must have already worked with your advisor to review and edit multiple drafts of your application materials.

Faculty familiar with reviewing fellowship applications will lead small working groups to offer suggestions and edits to help applicants prepare competitive applications. Prior to the workshop, identify areas you have questions about or want to focus on, and bring copies of your application materials with you.

Seating is limited.

Application deadline for dissertation and postdoctoral applicants is December 7, 2017 and predoctoral applicants is December 14, 2017.

Eligibility to apply for a Ford fellowship is limited to:

  • All U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, and U.S. permanent residents (holders of a Permanent Resident Card), as well as individuals granted deferred action status under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program, political asylees, and refugees, regardless of race, national origin, religion, gender, age, disability, or sexual orientation,

  • Individuals with evidence of superior academic achievement (such as grade point average, class rank, honors or other designations), and

  • Individuals committed to a career in teaching and research at the college or university level.
