Thurgood Marshall Fellowship

Applications Open for 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.

Dissertation Fellowships Connect New Scholars to Dartmouth

This year, Dartmouth is home to three scholars fresh from the graduate programs where they have prepared their doctoral work. They are here to wrap up the final stages of their apprenticeships in academia.

The pre-doctoral fellowships support graduate scholars who have completed all other PhD requirements for a year-long residency at Dartmouth to finish their dissertations with access to the libraries, computing facilities, and faculty.

Kate Beane, from the University of Minnesota, is the Charles A. Eastman Fellow; Jessica De La Ossa, from the University of Arizona, is the César Chávez Fellow; and Jaira Harrington, from the University of Chicago, is the Thurgood Marshall Fellow.
