The second year of residency (ideally with degree in hand) is spent on academic career development while again teaching just one course.

Eligible departments: Africana Studies; American Studies; Anthropology/Sociology; Art; Asian Studies; Comparative Literature; Economics; Environmental Studies; Geosciences; German/Russian; History; Jewish Studies; Justice and Law; Latina/o; Mathematics and Statistics; Philosophy; Physics; Psychology; Romance Languages; Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies

Eligibility: The Bolin Fellowships are awarded to applicants from underrepresented groups, including ethnic minorities, those who are first-generation college graduates, women in predominately male fields, or disabled scholars.”
