Administered by the National Research Council
 ( http://www.nationalacademies.org/nrc/ ), the Ford Foundation
 Diversity Fellowships seek to increase the diversity of U.S.
 college and university faculties by increasing their ethnic and
 racial diversity, to maximize the educational benefits of diver-
 sity, and to increase the number of professors who can and will
 use diversity as a resource for enriching the education of all

 To facilitate these goals, NRC awards fellowships at the pre-
 doctoral, dissertation, and postdoctoral levels to students who
 demonstrate excellence, a commitment to diversity and a desire
 to enter the professoriate.

 The program makes the following annual awards: approximately
 sixty pre-doctoral awards of $20,000 per year for up to three
 years (Deadline: November 15, 2007); approximately thirty-five
 dissertation awards of $21,000 for one year (Deadline: November
 29, 2007); and approximately twenty postdoctoral awards of
 $40,000 each for one year (Deadline: November 29, 2007).

 All citizens or nationals of the United States regardless of
 race, national origin, religion, gender, age, disability, or
 sexual orientation are eligible to apply. Applicants should have
 evidence of superior academic achievement; be committed to a
 career in teaching and research at the college or university
 level; be enrolled in or planning to enroll in an eligible
 research-based program leading to a Ph.D. or Sc.D. degree at
 a U.S. educational institution; and have not earned a doctoral
 degree at any time, in any field.
