Middlebury College Dissertation Fellowship for Educational Diversity


Middlebury College invites applications for a dissertation fellowship for academic year 2012-13.  We seek graduate students with a clear commitment and ability to advance educational diversity, either through the nature of their scholarly work, or through their ability to model success in fields where their own backgrounds and experiences may be underrepresented. Fellows will receive mentorship from faculty committed to excellence in scholarship and in undergraduate education.  Fellows will be hosted by an appropriate department or program, and will be expected to teach one one-semester course.  Fellows may apply to extend their affiliation with Middlebury to a second year.  The annual stipend for the position is $30,000.  Ph.D. candidates must have completed all doctoral work except the dissertation by the end of the current academic year.  Applicants must be U.S. citizens, U.S. Legal Permanent Residents or otherwise authorized to work in the U.S. (e.g., non-U.S. citizen Ph.D. students would need to have employment authorization from their home institution that will allow them to receive a stipend from Middlebury College).


The Philosophy Department at Middlebury is especially receptive to hosting a Dissertation Fellow.


Middlebury College uses Interfolio to collect all application materials. Email and paper applications will not be accepted.  The application deadline is January 18, 2012.  Through Interfolio, please submit the following:  C.V., three confidential letters of recommendation, one of which must be from your dissertation advisor, dissertation abstract, one-page [approximately 250 words] work plan for completion of dissertation, personal statement, and official graduate transcripts. More information:


Inquiries should be sent to Professor Kareem Khalifa (Philosophy Department) or Dean Jim Ralph, co-chairs of the Dissertation Fellowship Search Committee, at [email protected]


Middlebury College is an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to recruiting a diverse faculty to complement its increasingly diverse student body.
