James Weldon Johnson Institute of Emory University - Dissertation Completion Fellowships
The James Weldon Johnson Institute of Emory University invites applications for its Visiting Fellowship for Pre-Doctoral Scholars. Supported by a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Visiting Fellows Program provides two fellowships for pre-doctoral scholars in the humanities who are approaching their final year towards completion of the Ph.D. degree.
We are interested in supporting the completion of dissertation projects across the spectrum of the humanities that examine the origins, evolution, impact and legacy of race, difference, and the modern quest for civil and human rights. We also support research projects that examine race and ethnicity and its points of intersection with other identities and movements addressing differences along gender, class, religious, or sexual lines.
Visiting Fellows will be in residence at Emory’s Johnson Institute for the academic year 2018-2019.
