I hope you will make a point of becoming acquainted with and encouraging these
The fellows who are all U.S. citizens from under-represented groups, were
chosen for their potential for becoming faculty members at research
universities. Each fellow has a faculty mentor who serves as research advisor
and provides career guidance. Both the President's and the Chancellor's
awards are for two years and provide a stipend, health insurance, and research
and travel expenses. Funding for the Chancellor's Fellowships is provided
by the Office of the President. The administration of both programs is
coordinated by Vice Chancellor Attiyeh.
For the 1995-96 competition, I encourage you to identify promising
minority scholars (particularly African-Americans, Mexican-Americans,
American Indians, Filipinos, and Puerto Ricans) from anywhere in the
United States who will soon complete or have recently completed their
Ph.D.'s and urge them to apply for the Chancellor's Postdoctoral Fellowships.
Applications for the President's Fellowships are encouraged from members
of the above minority groups and Asian Americans in all fields from women
in physical sciences, mathematics, and engineering.
To apply for both awards, candidates should apply to the University of
California President's Fellowship Program. All under-represented minority
applicants for the President's Fellowship who designate a UCSD faculty
member as their mentor will automatically be considered for the Chancellor's
