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. Since its inception, the APSA DFP has designated more than 600 fellows and contributed to the successful completion of doctoral political science programs for over 100 individuals.
The following students were named as the 2021-2022 APSA Diversity Fellowship Program recipients during the spring 2021 application cycle. These fellows are currently enrolled in 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.
