Application submissions for the 2019-2020 Yerby Fellowship Program will begin Friday, September 7, 2018. This program is designed to increase diversity among individuals who wish to pursue academic careers in public health. Working closely with accomplished faculty mentors, Yerby Fellows gain experience and skills in areas critical to success in an academic environment, with emphasis on research, publication, and grant writing development.
The Yerby Fellowship is an exceptional professional opportunity for applicants. The Fellowship seeks candidates whose research, teaching, and service will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in academic public health. The program is particularly interested in scholars with the potential to bring to their research and teaching the critical perspective that comes from their understanding of the experiences of groups historically underrepresented in higher education. Candidates must have received a doctoral degree in a relevant field. The application deadline is 5PM, November 9, 2018.
