2 STATEMENT OF PROGRAM GOALS Through its program of Fellowships, 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. PREDOCTORAL AWARDS This year the program will award approximately 60 predoctoral fellowships. These fellowships provide three years of support for individuals engaged in graduate study leading to a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) or Doctor of Science (Sc.D.) degree. Predoctoral fellowships will be awarded in a national competition administered by the National Research Council (NRC) of the National Academies on behalf of the Ford Foundation. The awards will be made to individuals who, in the judgment of the review panels, have demonstrated superior academic achievement, are committed to a career in teaching and research at the college or university level, show promise of future achievement as scholars and teachers, and are well prepared to use diversity as a resource for enriching the education of all students. ELIGIBILITY Eligibility to apply for a predoctoral fellowship is limited to: All citizens, nationals, and permanent residents (holders of a Permanent Resident Card) of the United States, and individuals granted deferred action status under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program, 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, Individuals enrolled in or planning to enroll in an eligible research-based (dissertation-required), program leading to a Ph.D. or Sc.D. degree at a non-proprietary U.S. educational institution, Individuals who require a minimum of three years study to complete their Ph.D./Sc.D. degree as of the 2015 fall semester, including at least one year of full time coursework remaining as of the 2015 fall term, and Individuals who have not earned a doctoral degree at any time, in any field. Receipt of the fellowship award is conditioned upon each awardee providing satisfactory documentation that he or she meets the eligibility requirements. CRITERIA FOR SELECTION 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 Membership in one or more of the following groups whose underrepresentation in the American professoriate has been severe and longstanding: Alaska Natives (Aleut, Eskimo or other Indigenous People of Alaska) Black/African Americans Mexican Americans/Chicanas/Chicanos Native American Indians Native Pacific Islanders (Hawaiian/Polynesian/ Micronesian) Puerto Ricans Applications will be evaluated by panels of distinguished scholars selected by the National Academies.
