NYU Postdoctoral and Transition Program for Academic Diversity Fellowship is a two year in-residence fellowship at NYU. The purpose of the program is to ensure diverse scholarly environments and to encourage individuals to enter the academic profession. The Fellowship Program is open to all areas of study at the University. Individuals who have completed their dissertation within the last three years or professionals transitioning to academic careers (for those in fields for which the doctorate is not the terminal degree) are eligible to apply. Fellows are appointed as Assistant Professors/Faculty Fellows and receive up to $65,000 in funding.
