Applications are invited in all disciplines. Fellowship recipients must be either U.S. citizens or permanent residents committed to and willing to contribute to enhancing the diversity of Consortium colleges and their faculties. Furthermore, candidates should have no more than five years of teaching or relevant experience before the starting date of the most recent fellowship. Two types of residential fellowship awards are available under this program, and appointed fellows are expected to relocate to the appointing college or university for the duration of the fellowship:
The Dissertation Fellowship
The dissertation fellowship is intended for scholars who have completed all requirements for the Ph.D. or the M.F.A. except the dissertation. This fellowship is intended for scholars in the final stage of their dissertation and aims, above all, to help the fellow complete the final requirements for the degree during the year of residency. Dissertation fellows will receive compensation equivalent to the compensation of a starting one-year instructor at the host institution. Modest funds could be made available to finance proposed research and scholarship. Mentoring of teaching will be provided. Modest funds, if available, allocated for these activities will be subject to the usual institutional procedures. Dissertation fellows will be expected to teach the equivalent of one semester-long course during the academic year, participate in functions such as departmental seminars, and interact regularly with students.
The Postdoctoral Fellowship
The postdoctoral fellowship is intended for scholars who have been awarded the Ph.D. or M.F.A. no later than the beginning of the fellowship year and no earlier than five years before the beginning of the fellowship year. Postdoctoral fellows will receive compensation commensurate with the salary of a full-time, one-year faculty member with comparable qualifications. Modest funds could be made available to finance proposed research, mentoring of teaching, and scholarship. The funds allocated for these activities will be subject to the usual institutional procedures. Postdoctoral fellowship recipients will be expected to teach up to 60% of a full-time faculty's course load at a host institution, participate in departmental seminars, and interact regularly with students.
