Diversity and Inclusion

Fellowships

For Faculty

Every year Five Colleges announces opportunities for dissertation fellowships intended to promote diversity in the academy.  After review by a committee composed of representatives from Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke and Smith, four fellowships are awarded, each based at one of the colleges (the UMass does not participate in this program). The Fellowship, which is open to applicants in all fields, provides a $30,000 stipend, benefits, research support, housing assistance, and research and teaching mentorship.  This year’s announcement—and a list of current and recent fellows—is available at https://www.fivecolleges.edu/faculty/fellowships
