CCSRE Graduate Fellowships are for outstanding doctoral students who are interested in the study of the meanings, processes, and consequences of race, ethnicity and inequality. CCSRE-GFs are three-year awards for doctoral students newly admitted by a degree program. Prospective fellows are nominated by the Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity (CCSRE) Affiliated Faculty during the admissions season. The fellowship provides the opportunity to meet on a regular basis with the faculty members, scholars, undergraduates, and graduate students who comprise the interdisciplinary community at CCSRE. The first fellowships were awarded for the 2008-09 academic year.

Nominees must be:

  • interested in pursuing research projects on how race, ethnicity, and inequality shape society and individual experience
  • outstanding applicants newly admitted by a degree program that offers doctoral degrees
  • matriculating in autumn 2022
  • nominated by a CCSRE Affiliated Faculty Member.

Awards will be approved by the Graduate Fellowships Faculty Advisory Committee (GFFAC), a University-wide faculty committee that reviews VPGE-administered Stanford fellowships. GFFAC decisions will be made in mid-March. Offers of the CCSRE-GF to recipients will be coordinated between CCSRE, VPGE, and the admitting degree program shortly thereafter.
