The Carter G. Woodson Institute for African American and African Studies celebrates its 40th Anniversary this year!

Woodson Fellowship program accepting applications

Throughout its 40-year history, the Woodson Fellowship program has supported the scholarship of the leading figures in black studies, some of whom are represented at ASWAD’s conference, including Davarian Baldwin and Nicole Burrowes. The application is currently open for the next cohort of CGWI fellows. The residential fellowship provides 2 years of funding for pre-and-post-doctoral fellows. Former fellows have emphasized the value of the Woodson program’s interdisciplinarity, its intellectual community, and its flexibility in providing a space to focus on one’s scholarship with few administrative burdens. Please share this information with your home departments, graduate students, and broader professional networks to help the Woodson Institute continue its leading role in fostering cutting edge research in black studies. 

The deadline is December 1st at 11:59 pm (EST). 

Find more information about the fellowship program on the Woodson website, where you can also see a list of all the Woodson Fellowship alumni.
