The APSA Diversity Fellows Program (DFP) is a fellowship competition for individuals from underrepresented backgrounds applying to or in the early stages of doctoral programs in political science. The DFP was established in 1969 (originally as the Black Graduate Fellowship) to increase the number of minority scholars in the discipline. This year’s funded fellows will receive $5,000, over two years.
The following students were named as the 2021-2022 APSA Minority Fellowship Program recipients during the fall 2020 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 an upcoming edition of Political Science Today.
