Scholarships & Fellowships

  • Ford Fellowship Information session and Q&A

    The Ford Foundation offers fellowships to increase diversity at predoctoral (early years of Ph.D. program), dissertation, and postdoctoral levels. Applicants must be preparing for academic careers and must be U.S. citizens, nationals, permanent residents, or individuals with DACA status. The information session will cover the mission of the Foundation and how your application can address it, the details of the application process, and the services and resources that the Office of National Scholarships and Fellowships offers to UConn applicants. This is an outstanding opportunity to apply for a prestigious fellowship that will admit you to the community of Ford Scholars.

    There will be a panel of Ford Fellowship reviewers as well a Ford Fellow who will participate in the Q&A session.
