These fellowship awards have made substantial contributions in bringing excellence and diversity to the academic community by supporting the career development of almost 5000 outstanding scholars. Many of these scholars continue to be connected to the fellowship programs, to other Ford Fellows, and to the broader work of the Foundation through their scholarship and service in both public and private spheres.
