Learn about the Ford Foundation Predoctoral Fellowship, which provides an
annual stipend of $24,000 for three years and access to a large network of
successful Ford Fellows. The Ford Foundation awards approximately 70
predoctoral fellowships every year. These fellowships provide three years of
support for individuals engaged in research-based graduate study leading to a
Ph.D.

The Ford Foundation seeks to increase the diversity of the nation’s college
and university faculties by increasing their ethnic and racial diversity, to
maximize the educational benefits of diversity, and to increase the number of
professors who can and will use diversity as a resource for enriching the
education of all students.


Eligibility to apply to a predoctoral fellowship is limited to:

All U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, and U.S. permanent residents, as well as
individuals granted deferred action status under the Deferred Action for
Childhood Arrivals Program, political asylees, and refugees, regardless of
race, national origin, religion, gender, age, disability, or sexual
orientation,
Individuals with evidence of superior academic achievement (such as grade
point average, class rank, honors, or other designations),
Individuals committed to a career in teaching and research at the college or
university level,

(dissertation-required), program leading to a Ph.D. or Sc.D. degree,
Individuals who as of the 2019 fall semester require a minimum of three years
of study to complete their Ph.D./Sc.D. degree, and
Individuals who have not earned a doctoral degree at any time, in any field.

The following will be considered as positive factors in choosing successful
candidates:

Evidence of superior academic achievement
Degree of promise of continuing achievement as scholars and teachers
Capacity to respond in pedagogically productive ways to the learning needs of
students from diverse backgrounds
Sustained personal engagement with communities that are underrepresented in
the academy and an ability to bring this asset to learning, teaching, and
scholarship at the college and university level
Likelihood of using the diversity of human experience as an educational
resource in teaching and scholarship
