Ford Foundation Fellowship

Ford Foundation flyer

Preparing competitive fellowship applications is an art form in which the compilation of requested materials is only one step. The fellowship application process involves understanding the focus and content of the call, preparing competitive materials and seeking letters of support. As one of the most competitive and prestigious fellowships for underrepresented scholars, Ford’s multipart application is a prime site to begin crafting a broad array of fellowship and grant applications. Using the Ford Foundation Fellowship Program as a model, participants will be guided through the process of preparing and successfully submitting an application with insights into critical steps of the application and review process provided by a recent fellowship recipient and current applicant reviewer.

Note: While any participant can benefit from the materials presented at this workshop, we anticipate the workshop will be most beneficial for pre-doctoral researchers, post-doctoral researchers, and early career faculty.
