AERA Minority Dissertation Fellowship

AERA Minority Dissertation Fellowship is open to outstanding minority graduate students. The fellowship is awarded for students doing doctoral dissertation research conducted under faculty sponsorship at any accredited university in the United States.

Fellowships are offered to members of racial and ethnic groups that are historically underrepresented in higher education. African Americans, Alaskan Natives, American Indians, Asian Americans, Hispanics or Latinos, and Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islanders all may apply.

Applicants can be in graduate programs that include education research, the humanities, or social or behavioral science disciplinary or interdisciplinary fields, such as economics, political science, psychology, or sociology. The fellowship can be used for tuition, fees, books, living expenses, equipment, travel, supplies, software, and other research-related expenses.

The fellowship is sponsored by The American Educational Research Association (AERA), a national research society located in Washington, D.C. The organization focuses on the importance of education and fosters the use of research to improve education and the public good.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in NOVEMBER of each year, and the award amount is usually $19,000.
