The dissertation fellowships provide one year of support for individuals working to complete a dissertation leading to a PhD or ScD degree. The Ford Foundation Dissertation Fellowship is intended to support the final year of writing and defense of the dissertation.
The awards will be made to individuals who, in the judgment of the review panels, have demonstrated superior academic achievement, are committed to a career in teaching and research at the college or university level, show promise of future achievement as scholars and teachers, and are well prepared to use diversity as a resource for enriching the education of all students. The total amount of the award is a one-year stipend of $25,000.
