CREST Diversity Dissertation Fellowship
The Center for Citizenship, Race, and Ethnicity Studies (CREST) at The College of Saint Rose anticipates offering two one-year diversity fellowships for doctoral candidates engaged in completing their dissertations. CREST seeks applicants whose research addresses issues of diversity central to the Center's interdisciplinary mission. Potential fellows' dissertations should be influenced by some of the following research agendas: race, racial identity, race relations, ethnicity, colonialism, state formation, Diaspora societies, borderlands, and citizenship in regional, national, trans-national, littoral, or comparative contexts.
This one-year non-renewable fellowship carries a $20,000 stipend, on-campus housing, $5,000 in research expenses, courtesy access to local libraries, and office space.
Fellows are expected to complete their dissertations by the end of their fellowship year and will teach one course in their respective discipline during either the fall or spring semester. During their residency, Fellows will present their research and be active participants in CREST's intellectual life.
The Center for Citizenship, Race, and Ethnicity Studies (CREST) serves as a place for scholars at The College of Saint Rose and across the region to exchange ideas and research on issues related to the social construction of race, ethnicity, and citizenship. CREST researchers gain insights and methodologies from a variety of disciplines, including history, political science, literature, geography, cultural studies, anthropology, Africana Studies, Latino Studies, Asian Studies, American Studies, women's studies, critical race studies, urban studies, legal studies, and communication studies. The Center seeks to develop new and better ways to recognize, understand, and intervene in critical public policy issues, always grounding this intervention in broad-based interdisciplinary humanities scholarship.
Eligibility Requirements: (1) a record of outstanding academic achievement; (2) enrollment in a full-time academic program leading to a doctoral degree at the time of application and for the duration of the fellowship; (3) admission to degree candidacy before the dissertation fellowship is awarded; (4) approval of the dissertation proposal by the applicant's committee prior to application; (5) commitment to a career in teaching and research at the college or university level; (6) U. S. citizen, regardless of race, national origin, religion, gender, age, disability, or sexual orientation.
