  • Thurgood Marshall Dissertation Fellowship

Dartmouth College invites applications for the Thurgood Marshall Dissertation Fellowship. The fellowship supports scholars working in any area of Africana Studies, broadly construed. Particular attention will be given to candidates whose work augments and complements current faculty in the African and African American Studies Program (AAAS). Applicants will be selected on the basis of their academic achievement, promise in both research and teaching, and their demonstrated commitment to educational diversity. Applications from candidates who are underrepresented in their fields are especially welcome.

This is a two-year residential fellowship, with one course taught in the second year. Fellows are expected to complete the dissertation before the second year and then transition to a postdoctoral appointment. Throughout, fellows are expected to pursue research activities while participating fully in the intellectual life of the department and the college. The first year, fellows receive an annual stipend of approximately $36,000 plus benefits and an allocation for research expenses; as a postdoctoral fellow in the second year, the stipend is approximately $55,200 plus benefits and an allocation for research expenses (exact funding levels for 2018-20 will be set at the time of offer).

Marshall Fellows are part of the Provost’s Fellowship Program, a multidisciplinary cohort of approximately ten predoctoral and postdoctoral scholars who share a commitment to increasing diversity in their disciplines. Fellows participate together in mentoring and professional development programming, including guidance in preparing for faculty careers. Deadline: Feb 2, 2019 at 11:59 PM (Eastern Time).
