Increase Faculty Diversity

Double length of Chavez, Eastman, and Marshall Fellowship programs

To increase the pipeline of faculty from underrepresented groups Dartmouth will double the length of the Chavez, Eastman and Marshall fellowships from one year to two. 

Provost/School Deans

The Chavez, Eastman and Marshall fellowships have brought to Dartmouth promising young pre-doctoral scholars from Latino/a, Native American, and African American backgrounds, respectively. Previously one year fellowships, they are terrific opportunities to help support younger scholars and extending the timeframe will allow for completion of doctoral work and better establishment of their scholarship. 


The length of the Chavez Fellowship was doubled during the Spring 2016 recruitment season, thanks to support from a Mellon Foundation planning grant. 

For the Eastman and Marshall fellowships, the two-year terms will be implemented for candidates arriving in Fall 2017. 


As of Fall 2017, Dartmouth has doubled the length of its Chavez, Eastman and Marshall fellowships, adding a second postdoctoral year to the exsting pre-dissertation fellowships. To ensure continuity in recruitment, each fellowship hosts two scholars. Dartmouth's commitment to these historic programs has thus increased from three scholars to six, each in residence for two years instead of one. These fellowships are part of the Provost's Fellowship Program at the Guarini School of Graduate and Advanced Studies.
