Ford Fellowships: Advice from Awardees at Liberal Arts Colleges
A presentation that will be useful for faculty at liberal arts colleges who are interested in applying for the Ford Fellowship in 2020 (or further into the future) and would like a sense of how colleagues at liberal arts colleges have approached the competition.
Three Ford Fellowship awardees from liberal arts colleges will provide a panel discussion of their projects and how they approached the grant competition:
- Martha-Elizabeth Baylor, Associate Professor of Physics and Chair of the Physics and Astronomy Department at Carleton College
- LeRhonda Manigault-Bryant, Professor of Africana Studies at Williams College
- Taneisha Means, Assistant Professor of Political Science on the Class of 1951 Chair at Vassar College

We'll offer plenty of time for Q&A; If there any topics you're particularly interested in hearing the panelists discuss, you can suggest them when you register or later post them in the webinar itself. The Ford is often a bit mysterious to faculty members (and to those of us who help them apply!), so our hope is that this discussion will help faculty members at liberal arts colleges get some insights on the program from peers who have had success.

We're also hoping to provide some opportunities for attendees to connect with fellow faculty at other institutions after the webinar.
