Become A Fellow

The MAJRR fellows distinguish themselves from their academic peers by bridging the gap between scholarly research and practical applications. While not currently receiving financial compensation, fellows receive in-kind support to enhance the visibility of their ideas and research findings to the wider public. This support includes community engagement, profile interviews, news appearances, podcasts, radio broadcasts, and publication in the Minority American Journal. As 22nd-century fellows, their work is presented in various multimedia formats to ensure accessibility to a broad audience that may not read or have access to traditional academic journals.

Key Criteria

To become a MAJRR fellow, an individual should be an established thought leader or expert in their respective field and have a track record of producing original research or creative work on topics related to race and racism in America. They should be able to operate where academia intersects with the real world, with a focus on making their work accessible to the broader public. A MAJRR fellow should also be committed to the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion and have a desire to contribute to a more just and equitable future for all Americans.

Criteria for Students

To be considered for the MAJRR student fellowship program, applicants must be currently enrolled in a graduate program in a relevant field of study (such as journalism, media studies, sociology, or political science), have a demonstrated interest in issues related to race and racism, and have a track record of academic excellence and professional achievement. Students should have at least one year of study remaining in their program and be able to commit to a minimum of 10 hours per week of fellowship work during the academic year. The fellowship is open to students of all racial and ethnic backgrounds.
