The Erskine A. Peters Dissertation Year Fellowship has two overall goals, to enable outstanding African American doctoral candidates at the ABD level to devote their full energies to the completion of the dissertation, and to provide opportunities for African American scholars to experience life at the University of Notre Dame, a major Catholic research institution.
The fellowship period extends from August to May and carries a stipend of $30,000 plus a $2,000 research budget.
The University also provides each fellow with a home department, a faculty mentor in the fellow’s specialization area, office space with use of a personal computer, health insurance, and forum discussions on professional development.
The University of Notre Dame is an equal opportunity employer with a strong commitment to nurturing a culturally diverse faculty and student body.
Interested candidates for the academic year should refer to the Erskine Peters Fellowship Web site at http://africana.nd.edu/erskine/ and follow the online application instructions. Please check the Web site for application deadlines.
