Fellowships in Data Curation for African American and African Studies

The host application deadline has passed, and we are no longer accepting applications. Please check back in September 2019 when we will reopen the host application for a second cohort of Postdoctoral Fellows in Data Curation for African American and African Studies.

These two-year fellowships, which are supported by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, will provide five recent Ph.D.s with professional development, education, and training opportunities in data curation for African American and African Studies. The fellows’ work must draw upon their disciplinary expertise in order to help advance data curation practices and services at their host institutions.
