mitchem dissertation fellowship

Marquette University invites applications for the Arnold L. Mitchem Dissertation Fellowship Program. Mitchem Fellowships seek to help increase the presence of currently underrepresented racial and cultural groups in the U.S. professoriate by supporting advanced doctoral candidates during completion of the dissertation. The fellowships provide one year of support for doctoral candidates well into the writing stage of their dissertation work who are U.S. citizens currently enrolled in U.S. universities. 

In addition to library, office and clerical support privileges, Mitchem Fellows receive a $35,000 stipend plus fringe benefits, research and travel monies for the 2011-2012 academic year. 

Fellows are to be in residence at Marquette University for the academic year (22 August, 2011-20 May 2012) during which they teach one (1) course in their area of specialization, interact with faculty and undergraduate students, and devote their primary energies to the completion and defense of their dissertations. During their residence, Mitchem Fellows will participate in a formal mentoring program, each fellow collaborating with a senior faculty mentor who is appointed by the Dean in his or her discipline. 
Masters Degree preferred or substantial progress toward the terminal degree. 

Applications for the 2011-12 Fellowships are invited from the following academic areas: Education, English, Foreign Languages and Literatures, History, Mathematics and Mathematics Education, Statistics, and Computer Science, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology, Social and Cultural Sciences, Theology, Religious Studies, Journalism and Mass Communications, and Communication Studies.

S. citizens or nationals, have completed all other requirements for the Ph.D. and are at the writing stage of their dissertation work, and belong to a racial-cultural group historically underrepresented in the U.S. professoriate: African American, Native American, and Hispanic American candidates are especially encouraged to apply.
