POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS SUPPORT A NEW GENERATION OF PROFESSORS

From the Amazon to experimental physics, from the Black Lives Matter movement to youth resilience, a new cohort of postdoctoral fellows reflects the University of Virginia’s commitment to expand research and teaching about issues of race and equity and to bring scholars who are underrepresented in their fields to Grounds. 

The College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences has created a new Rising Scholars fellowship program, with support from the University’s Race, Place and Equity grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and additional funds.
