Latina/o/x scholars interested in higher education careers encouraged to apply to fellowship program

The American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education (AAHHE), an organization committed to serving and supporting fellow Latina/o/x scholars in all areas of graduate study, seeks applications to its Graduate Student Fellows’ Program (GSFP), which is open to Latina/o/x students who are pursuing a doctoral degree.

The AAHHE Graduate Student Fellows Program’s (GSFP) primary goal is to prepare Latina/o/x doctoral scholars for successful careers in academia; the GSFP also provides support to Latina/o/x scholars interested in pursuing careers within administration and policy in post-secondary education. Towards this end, program sub-goals include to:

  1. Provide strategies to assist scholars in achieving their educational and professional goals
  2. Provide constructive feedback on graduate student fellows’ research
  3. Build community and network with other Latina/o/x scholars

GSFP offers professional and academic development among a small cohort of scholars who are honored at the yearly AAHHE National Conference.

The application is due Friday, July 2, 2021 at 5 p.m. (PST). Please note that this is an updated due date and may not be reflected on the AAHHE website, but July 2 at 5PM PST is the correct deadline.

This is an excellent opportunity for those chosen to not only connect and build community with other fellow Latina/o/x doctoral students across the nation, but to also gain knowledge about academia during and beyond graduate school through the workshops that are offered exclusively to our graduate students fellows. The fellows will also receive many opportunities for growth including a presentation of their research with individual feedback from a Latina/o/x faculty coach during their time in the program.

Past AAHHE graduate student fellows are professors, researchers, and administrators at some of the top universities in the nation. Learn more about the the AAHE graduate fellows program.
