Consortium for Faculty Diversity in Liberal Arts Colleges -- Fellowships

Funding Agency:
CFD Consortia Colleges

The Consortium for Faculty Diversity at Liberal Arts Colleges invites applications in all disciplines for Scholar-in-Residence appointments at over 60 nationally ranked colleges and universities. 

The Consortium invites applications for dissertation and post-doctoral fellowships from candidates who will contribute to increasing the diversity of member colleges by increasing their ethnic and racial diversity, maximizing the educational benefits of diversity and/or increasing the number of professors who can and will use diversity as a resource for enriching the education of students.

Applicants must be able to provide evidence of U.S. citizenship or unconditional permanent residency status at the time of hire.

The Dissertation Fellowship: The dissertation fellowship is intended for scholars who have completed all requirements for the terminal degree (PhD; MFA; JD; EdD; MBA; MD; ….) except the dissertation. This fellowship is intended for scholars in the final stage of their dissertation and aims, above all, to help the fellow complete the final requirements for the degree during the year of residency. Dissertation fellows will receive compensation equivalent to the compensation of a starting one-year instructor at the host institution. Modest funds could be made available to finance proposed research and scholarship. Mentoring of teaching will be provided. Modest funds, if available, allocated for these activities will be subject to the usual institutional procedures. Dissertation fellows will be expected to teach the equivalent of one semester-long course during the academic year, participate in functions such as departmental seminars, and interact regularly with students.

 

The Postdoctoral Fellowship:

The postdoctoral fellowship is intended for scholars who have been awarded the terminal degree (PhD; MFA; JD; EdD; MBA; MD; ….) no later than the beginning of the fellowship year and no earlier than five years before the beginning of the fellowship year. Postdoctoral fellows will receive compensation commensurate with the salary of a full-time, one-year faculty member with comparable qualifications. Modest funds could be made available to finance proposed research, mentoring of teaching, and scholarship. The funds allocated for these activities will be subject to the usual institutional procedures. Postdoctoral fellowship recipients will be expected to teach up to 60% of a full-time faculty's course load at a host institution, participate in departmental seminars, and interact regularly with students.
