AMERICAN POLITICAL SCIENCE ASSOCIATION MINORITY FELLOWS PROGRAM

The Minority Fellows Program (MFP) is a fellowship competition for individuals from underrepresented backgrounds applying to or in the early stages of doctoral programs in political science. The MFP was established in 1969 (originally as the Black Graduate Student Fellowship) to increase the number of African American graduate students in the discipline. In 1979 the Chicano Student Fellowship was established. Overtime, the fellowship program has expanded to include support for racial and ethnic underrepresented scholars. Since its inception, the APSA MFP has designated more than 600 fellows and contributed to the successful completion of doctoral political science programs for over 100 individuals.

About the Fellowship: Each year, APSA awards between 12-14 funded fellowships in the amount of $4,000. Recently, APSA introduced a new spring round of the MFP awards for graduate students in the pre-dissertation stage of their career. This year, the spring cycle MFP awards are available in the form of a one-time award ranging between $1000 - $2000 (depending upon funding availability), to support expenses related to PhD graduate study for first and second year political science PhD students from underrepresented groups.

PHILLIPS FUND FOR NATIVE AMERICAN RESEARCH

The Phillips Fund of the American Philosophical Society provides grants for research in Native American linguistics, ethnohistory, and the history of studies of Native Americans, in the continental United States and Canada.

The grants are intended for such costs as travel, tapes, films, and consultants' fees. Grants are not made for projects in archaeology, ethnography, or psycholinguistics; for the purchase of permanent equipment; or for the preparation of pedagogical materials. The committee distinguishes ethnohistory from contemporary ethnography as the study of cultures and cultural change through time.

Eligibility: The committee prefers to support the work of younger scholars who have received the doctorate. Applications are also accepted from graduate students for research on master's theses or doctoral dissertations.

It is assumed that appropriate contacts and arrangements have or will be made with communities for ethical access and community guidance.

The committee sometimes approves two awards to the same person within a five-year period.

Award and Duration: The average award is about $3,000; grants do not exceed $3,500. Grants are given for one year following the date of the award. Grants are taxable income, but the Society is not required to report payments. It is recommended that grant recipients discuss their reporting obligations with their tax advisors. Grant funds are not to be used to pay income taxes.
