The School of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology invites applications for the 2015-2016 Diversity Predoctoral Fellowships. The purpose of the Diversity Predoctoral Fellowships program is to enhance diversity in the School and to provide the Fellow with additional professional support and mentoring as they enter the field. Members of racial and ethnic groups that have historically been underrepresented in the humanities and social sciences and from disadvantaged backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
Grantees may not accept other awards that provide a comparable stipend during the tenure of this fellowship nor may they undertake substantial outside employment (more than fifteen hours per week) without written permission. Persons who decline the offer of a Louisville Institute Dissertation Fellowship are ineligible to reapply in a subsequent year. The Dissertation Fellowship program has no residence requirement. However, all fellows selected in 2018 are expected to participate in the Institute’s annual Winter Seminar scheduled for February 2019 (exact dates TBA). LI will pay travel and lodging expenses for this gathering. Please note that LI grantees may not simultaneously hold two grants or fellowships from Lilly Endowment-funded organizations that total more than $45,000.
