Increase Faculty Diversity

Create Asian-American studies fellowship

To increase the pipeline of faculty from underrepresented groups, Dartmouth will add an Asian-American studies fellowship, in the model of the Chavez, Eastman and Marshall fellowships. 


Pre- and post-doctoral fellowships in African and African American studies, Native American studies and Latino/a studies have brought young scholars engaged in research in these areas to campus, where they have made meaningful contributions to the community. Adding a similar fellowship in Asian-American studies will expand Dartmouth's comparatively smaller profile in this area. 


During the academic year 2018-19, Dartmouth is conducting a search for a two-year pre-to-postdoctoral fellow in Asian American Studies to join a cohort of two postdoctoral fellows in Asian American Studies

The search seeks a candidate who is nearing completion of a PhD who "will broaden our understanding of Asian America" and is open as to discipline, inter-discipline or area taught in Dartmouth's undergraduate school of Arts and Sciences. The fellowship aims to foster the academic careers of scholars with active research agendas, and to help them produce cutting-edge scholarship and transformative ideas in their fields. The fellows will also contribute to the life of the host department(s) in productive, creative and engergizing ways.

Emily Walton, Associate Professor of Sociology and Women's and Gender and Sexuality Studies is chairing the search.

The recipients will join the Dartmouth community in fall 2019 and biographical information on the fellows will be posted in summer 2019.


This fellowship was established in Fall 2017, with two inaugeral scholars appointed as Dean's Fellows in Asian American Studies. To ensure continuity in recruitment, each scholar is appointed for a two-year residency. These fellowships are part of the Provost's Fellowship Program at the Guarini School of Graduate and Advanced Studies.
