Fellowship Announcement – ABF/AccessLex Institute Doctoral Fellowship Program in Legal & Higher Education

January 3, 2018
The American Bar Foundation (ABF), in partnership with AccessLex Institute, is committed to developing the next generation of scholars interested in empirical and interdisciplinary research on legal and higher education. The purpose of the fellowship is to assist emerging scholars who are studying issues of access, affordability, or value in legal and higher education. This doctoral fellowship program seeks to assemble and coordinate a professional network of scholars who will produce innovative, objective, empirical and interdisciplinary research in the field.


Fellows will receive a stipend of $35,000 for one academic year (12 months), with the possibility of a one-year renewal, pending budgetary approval. Doctoral fellows should retain benefits, including healthcare, through their home institution. Fellows will also have access to a modest research account to reimburse expenses associated with research, travel to meet with advisors, or travel to conferences at which papers are presented. Reasonable relocation expenses may be reimbursed on the application.


Fellowships are awarded for up to 12 months, beginning September 1, 2018.
