The APSA Minority Fellows Program (MFP) is a fellowship competition 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. Each year, ASPA awards up to 14 funded fellowships in the amount of $4,000.
The following students were named as the 2020-2021 APSA Minority Fellowship Program recipients during the fall 2019 application cycle. These fellows are currently applying to PhD programs in political science. Complete bios for each fellow are available at the link below and will be featured in the April 2020 edition of PS: Political Science and Politics.
