In keeping with Frederick Douglass’ life of public service and commitment to equity and access, the Frederick Douglass Institutes of Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education are offering teaching opportunities to graduate students who are pursuing careers as university faculty and who are entering the final year of terminal degree and/or doctoral programs.
Frederick Douglass Scholars Fellowships are designed to provide teaching and other professional experiences, mentoring, and potential employment opportunities within universities that are strongly committed to cultural diversity. Applicants from diverse cultural backgrounds, especially those from historically underrepresented groups, are encouraged to apply.
As a Frederick Douglass Scholars Fellow, scholars will teach and/or co-teach during the summer session(s) or full academic year (depending on term of appointment), continue their research, and contribute to the life of the university. Fellows will receive mentorship and professional support from experienced faculty, helping them to prepare for academic careers and job searches. Dates of employment vary among universities, but typically run during May –August 2018 for summer appointments, or August 2018 – May 2019 for full year appointments.
