Advice from the Archives Series Note: Occasionally, we dig into the archives to uncover a post we feel holds relevant and timely information worthy of a repost.

Series note: Building on our recent profiling of the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 Ford Fellows at Rutgers University-New Brunswick, we are pleased to share with you the second of our four Ford Fellow Roundtables.
The Ford Foundation, through its fellowship programs seeks to increase diversity in our nation’s colleges and universities. I recently sat down with our current Ford Dissertation Fellows to discuss what it means to be a Ford Fellow. In our conversation, the fellows shared with me their wonderful, personal insights on wining the Ford Fellowship and what it means to their scholarly development to be a part of a supportive, empowering community.
