ABF Doctoral Fellowship and Visiting Scholars Program in Legal and Higher Education

Ajay Mehrotra, Executive Director of the American Bar Foundation and erstwhile visiting Prawfs Blawg-er, passes along this information:

Social science Ph.D. students and current faculty members who study legal or higher education may be interested in a new fellowship opportunity offered by the American Bar Foundation (ABF).  In partnership with the Access Group Inc., the ABF will be supporting doctoral fellows and visiting scholars studying this important topic.  The ABF is accepting applications for one-year doctoral fellowships and short-term visiting scholars who may be on a sabbatical or research leave.  The goal of this program is to expand scholarship that contributes to an understanding of issues of access, affordability, or value in the field of legal or higher education by encouraging law and social science scholars to engage with this bourgeoning research field. While in residence at the ABF, visiting scholars will have the opportunity to conduct their research in an empirical and interdisciplinary research environment, and benefit from the academic and administrative resources of the ABF. (Click the hyperlinked text above for information on how to apply.)
