The primary aim of the Arnold L Mitchem Dissertation Fellowship Program is to help increase the presence of currently underrepresented racial and cultural groups in the U.S. professoriate by supporting doctoral candidates as they complete the final academic requirement, the dissertation. Currently Mitchem Fellowships provide one year of support for students with advanced candidacy in their doctoral programs in other U.S. universities. Fellows are to be in residence at Marquette University for the 2018-2019 academic year (August 13 – May 19) during which they teach one (1) course in their area of specialization, interact with faculty and undergraduate students, give a public presentation, and devote their primary energies to the completion and defense of their dissertations. The Fellow will receive a  $36,520 stipend, fringe benefits, plus research and travel monies for the 2018-2019 academic year. The University will further provide library privileges, office space, access to computer, and clerical support equivalent to that enjoyed by regular faculty members in the department with which a Fellow is affiliated.
