CAMRA Mellon Fellowship Program

Applications due date extended to May 30, 2021
The fundamental objective of the CAMRA Mellon Fellowship Program is to increase the national pipeline of undergraduate students who complete Ph.D. programs in core fields that engage with both the theoretical and practical underpinnings of multimedia research, interrogating the politics of representation and power at play in visual scholarship and media, as well as harnessing the potential of visual methods to democratize the production of knowledge in academic spaces. Through a three-year pipeline, the program aims to increase the presence of individuals from underrepresented groups pursuing Ph.D. programs on college and university faculties, as well as to address the attendant educational consequences of these disparities.
 
The CAMRA Mellon Fellowship Program is open to students with a demonstrated commitment to eradicating racial disparities with media including students who, though not from traditionally underrepresented groups, have otherwise demonstrated a commitment to the goals of the program. CAMRA Mellon applicants must be highly motivated towards gaining a Ph.D. and teaching at the university level.
