Diversity Fellowship Ph.D. in Regional Planning University of Massachusetts-Amherst

Diversity Fellowship Ph.D. in Regional Planning University of Massachusetts-Amherst


The Ph.D. Program in Regional Planning is pleased to announce that we have been awarded a Diversity Fellowship to enable us to increase number of students from underrepresented racial/ethnic groups in our doctoral program. The fellowship provides a generous stipend for the first year, a research or teaching assistantship for the second year, and tuition waiver for both.

The Doctoral Program accepts a small number of students each year and has an excellent track record in mentoring and placing candidates in academic positions. The areas in which the program currently has great strengths include: housing and discrimination, growth management and regional/greenways planning, international work in Portugal, Russia and other countries and environmental psychology. The Ph.D. Program is housed in the Department of Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning which provides an opportunity to explore ecological and design studies in depth. We also benefit from the breadth and strength of the university itself, including close ties to programs in public policy, geography, anthropology, information systems, and ethnic studies and area programs, as well as the larger university system more generally.

The Pioneer Valley is a wonderful place to live. It is home to rich cultural and academic traditions. We are sited between Boston, New York City and the Berkshire Mountains.

If you are interested, please contact Professor Ellen Pader, Director of the Ph.D. Program in Regional Planning, at 413-545-6620 or by email at [email protected].

The successful applicant must accept the Fellowship by April 15, 2002 for the Fall 2002 semester.
