Ford Foundation Fellowship Success Series: Q&A Information Session

Tue, Nov 05, 12:00 PM - 01:30 PM
/ Location: Elings Hall 1601


Do you want $24,000 per year? Would you like a prestigious honor on your CV? Are you a graduate student earning a Ph.D.? Are you a U.S. citizen, national resident, permanent resident, individual granted differed action under DACA, or a refugee? If you answered yes to all these questions, then you should consider applying for the Ford Foundation Fellowship. This academic merit fellowship seeks to award scholars whose future careers will involve teaching and research at the post-secondary level. While this fellowship uses diversity criteria to help select fellows, academic merit is the primary metric utilized to evaluate candidates. This means that anyone who seeks to pursue higher education as a career should consider applying for this fellowship.

But how does the fellowship work and how do you apply? In this Ford Foundation Fellowship Success Series session, besides covering the basics, we will walk you through all the steps of applying and answer any questions that you might have. On top of that, we have assembled previous winners of this award. These talented scholars have graciously agreed to speak about their own experiences, address common application pitfalls (so that you know how to avoid them!), and take any questions. Do not miss this opportunity to get a winner’s perspective.
