The Erskine A. Peters Dissertation Fellowship at the University of Notre Dame enables outstanding African American doctoral candidates (who have completed all graduate requirements but their dissertation and are officially ABD) to devote their full energies to the completion of the dissertation; and to provide an opportunity for African American scholars at the beginning of their academic careers to experience life at a major Catholic research university. The fellowship is tenable for a full academic year beginning in August and concluding in May. It carries with it a $30,000 stipend and $2,000 research budget. Fellows have access to all university facilities and are provided office space, use of a personal computer, an official academic home in the department of the Fellow's specialization, and access to a faculty mentor in the fellow's discipline. Fellows also participate in professional development workshops focused on employment strategies and career development.
Fellows are expected to be in residence at the university and to devote most of their time to the completion of the dissertation.
