The goal of the Thurgood Marshall Dissertation Fellowship is to promote student and faculty diversity at Dartmouth, and throughout higher education, by supporting completion of the doctorate by underrepresented minority scholars and other graduate scholars with a demonstrated commitment and ability to advance educational diversity. Fellows participate together in mentoring and professional development programming, including guidance in preparing for faculty careers.
Dartmouth College invites applications for the Thurgood Marshall Fellowship. We seek qualified applicants working in any geographies and disciplines and interdisciplinary spaces across African Diaspora, African American, African, or Africana Studies. Particular attention will be given to candidates whose work augments and complements current faculty in African and African American Studies (AAAS). We seek scholars who can contribute to building the intellectual life of the AAAS department and Dartmouth College. Applicants will be selected on the basis of their academic achievement, promise in both research and teaching, and their demonstrated commitment to educational diversity. Applications from candidates who are underrepresented in their fields are especially welcome.
This is a two-year residential fellowship. Fellows are expected to complete the dissertation before the second year and then transition to a postdoctoral appointment. Throughout, fellows are expected to pursue research activities while participating fully in the intellectual life of the department and the college. During the second year of residency, fellows teach one course.
