Academic Level:
Postdoc & Early Career

Description:
The McKnight Doctoral Fellowship program, funded by the FEF, is designed to address the under-representation of African American and Hispanic faculty at colleges and universities in the state of Florida by increasing the pool of citizens qualified with Ph.D. degrees to teach at the college and university levels. As a by-product, it is expected that employment opportunities in industry will also be expanded.

Up to 50 Fellowships are awarded annually to study at one of nine participating Florida universities, including the University of Miami. Each award provides annual tuition up to $5,000 (tuition above this amount is waived by the participating institution) for each of three academic years plus an annual stipend of $12,000. (An additional two years of support at this same level is provided by the participating institution.) The award also includes a comprehensive system of academic support.
