The University of California President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program was established in 1984 to encourage outstanding women and minority Ph.D. recipients to pursue academic careers at the University of California. The current program offers postdoctoral research fellowships, professional development and faculty mentoring to outstanding scholars in all fields whose research, teaching, and service will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity at UC.
Faculty affiliated with the University of California Santa Barbara’s Center for School-Based Youth Development are reaching out to our colleagues asking that you please share this information about the PPFP with students who will be completing degrees during the 2015-2016 academic year (applications are due November 1, 2015).
This fellowship program requires applicants to identify a University of California mentor. Please invite your students to visit the Center for School-Based Youth Development website. Our annual reports provide information about faculty members who are keenly interested in being a postdoctoral fellow mentor.
The CSBYD faculty is available to explore with your students how PPFP might offer them a unique professional opportunity and contribute to enriching the diversity of our UCSB campus.
As a first step, please asked your students to use the contact information listed below.
