Two overall goals exist: (1) to enable two outstanding African American doctoral candidates (at the ABD level) to devote their full energies to the completion of the dissertation; and (2) to provide an opportunity for African American scholars at the beginning of their academic careers to experience life at a major Catholic research university.
The fellowship is tenable for a full academic year beginning in August and concluding in May. It carries with it a $25,000 stipend and $2000 research budget. Fellows have access to all university facilities and are provided office space, use of a personal computer, an official academic home in the department of the Fellow’s specialization, and access to a faculty mentor in the fellow’s discipline. Fellows also participate in professional development workshops focused on employment strategies and career development.
Fellows are expected to be in residence at the University and to devote most of their time to the completion of the dissertation.
