Selection Process

Applicants will be selected on the basis of:

  • academic achievement and promise;
  • membership in a racial or ethnic group that is currently underrepresented among faculty in the applicant's academic field;
  • demonstrated commitment to increasing opportunities for underrepresented minorities and increasing cross-racial understanding;
  • and potential for serving as an advocate and mentor for minority undergraduate and graduate students.

Consideration will be made for scholars who seek to share their research as presenters and lecturers in the Dartmouth community. Each fellow will be expected to participate in selected activities with undergraduate students (for example, presenting guest lectures in classes, serving in programs for minority students interested in academic careers, and interacting with undergraduate majors in host departments).

Recipients of the Eastman Dissertation Fellowships will be appointed by the Dean of Graduate Studies, upon the recommendation of a faculty selection committee in consultation with appropriate departments.
