Apply To Become A Diversity Fellow

Ithaca College announces its Diversity Fellowship Program search for 2020 – 2021.  We will identify two promising dissertation fellows who will add to the racial and ethnic diversity of the Ithaca College faculty through a national search to be placed in various departments in the School of Humanities and Sciences.  For the 2020 - 2021 academic year, we are seeking applicants in the following disciplines: Communication Studies, English, Modern Languages and Literatures, Psychology, and Sociology.

Fellowships are for the academic year (August 16, 2020 – May 31, 2021) and are non-renewable.  Fellows will receive a $33,000 stipend, $5,000 in travel/professional development support, relocation reimbursement, office space, health benefits, and access to Ithaca College and Cornell University libraries.  Fellows will teach one course in the fall semester and one course in the spring semester; will be mentored by senior faculty; will be expected to participate in one official function per semester; and must partake in an exit interview.

Applicants must be enrolled in an accredited program leading to a Ph.D. degree at a U.S. institution; display evidence of a commitment to a career in teaching at the college or university level; display evidence of academic promise; and be authorized to work in the United States.  Candidates from underrepresented groups whose exclusions from the academy has been longstanding and who have demonstrated a commitment to minoritized communities in their teaching, service and/or research are strongly encouraged to apply. Prior to August 15, 2020, potential fellows must be advanced to candidacy at their home institution, with an approved dissertation proposal.  Preference will be given to candidates in the last year of dissertation writing.

Ithaca College is committed to building a diverse academic community and encourages members of underrepresented groups to apply. Experience that contributes to the diversity of the college is appreciated.
