CÉSAR CHÁVEZ PREDOCTORAL DISSERTATION FELLOWSHIP
Dartmouth College invites applications for the César Chávez Fellowship. The fellowship supports scholars whose research addresses aspects of Latinx experience and culture. Particular attention will be given to candidates whose work augments and complements current faculty in Latin American, Latino, and Caribbean Studies (LALACS). Applicants will be selected on the basis of their academic achievement, promise in both research and teaching, and their demonstrated commitment to educational diversity. Applications from candidates who are underrepresented in their fields are especially welcome.
This is a two-year residential fellowship. Fellows are expected to complete the dissertation before the second year and then transition to a postdoctoral appointment. Throughout, fellows are expected to pursue research activities while participating fully in the intellectual life of the department and the college. During the second year of residency, fellows teach one course. The first year, fellows receive an annual stipend of approximately $39,000 plus benefits and an allocation for research expenses; as a postdoctoral fellow in the second year, the stipend is approximately $57,960 plus benefits and an allocation for research expenses (exact funding levels for 2023-2025 will be set at the time of offer).
Chávez Fellows are part of the Provost's Fellowship Program, a multidisciplinary cohort of approximately ten predoctoral and postdoctoral scholars who share a commitment to increasing diversity in their disciplines. Fellows participate together in mentoring and professional development programming, including guidance in preparing for faculty careers.
ABD in any discipline, with a focus on any aspect of Latinx experience and culture.
