Ethnic Minority Dissertation Fellowship Announcement
For over twenty years, the USF Office of the Provost has invited scholars from underrepresented ethnic minorities to apply for the Ethnic Minority Dissertation Fellowship. In this program, scholars are expected to complete their dissertation on a diversity related research topic, while teaching one course per semester in the school where they are placed. Promising scholars from diverse backgrounds become familiar with the responsibilities of a USF faculty member. Many of USF’s celebrated professors began their careers at the university through this fellowship, and the university currently has 14 faculty members that are past fellows.
In this program, scholars are expected to develop as researchers and teachers, while teaching one course per semester within the College of Arts & Sciences. Fellows are housed in an existing department and work with senior faculty members to begin the development of an independent research program.
Scholars from underrepresented ethnic minorities are invited to apply to apply for the 2015-16 fellowships.
