The American Political Science Association is delighted to invite applications for the APSA Minority Fellowship Program (MFP). The fellowship competition available 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 Fellowship) to increase the number of minority scholars in the discipline. Since its inception, the APSA MFP has designated more than 500 fellows and contributed to the successful completion of doctoral political science programs for over 100 individuals.
Each year, APSA awards up to 12 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 $500-$1500 (depending upon funding availability), to support expenses related to PhD graduate study for first and second year political science PhD students from underrepresented groups.
