Sponsored by the National Poverty Centers Research and Training Program on Poverty and Public Policy, these fellowships provide outstanding American minority scholars and other scholars who are members of underrepresented groups in the social sciences an opportunity to spend one or two years conducting research and pursuing extensive training in residence at the National Poverty Center at the Univ of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
Fellows will participate in a number of seminars on poverty research and will be supervised by Dr. Sheldon Danziger, professor of Public Policy and co-director of the National Poverty Center.
During the fellowship period, scholars receive stipends of $48,000 per calendar year, beginning as early as July 1, 2008, but no later than September 1, 2008. Applicants must have completed their Ph.D. after 2002 and prior to August 31, 2008. Priority will be given to proposals that would benefit from the resources available at the University of Michigan and from interactions with affiliated faculty members.
The deadline for application is January 11, 2008.
