UA's Office of Research Services & Sponsored Programs shares this information about Ford Foundation Predoctorial Fellowships.

Welcome to the Fellowships Office of Policy and Global Affairs

The Fellowships Office (FO) of the National Academies administers predoctoral, postdoctoral, and senior fellowship awards on behalf of government and private/foundation sponsors; these fellowship awards play an important role in the career development of doctoral and postdoctoral researchers and scholars for the academic, federal, industrial and international workforce. Current opportunities are as follows:

Research Associateship Programs (RAP)
The NRC Resident Research Associateship Programs were established in 1954. The goal of this program is to provide advanced training for highly qualified graduate postdoctoral and visiting scientists, while enhancing the research conducted in federal laboratories and affiliated institutions. A wide variety of research opportunities are available at top research laboratories across the U.S. and in select foreign locations. These awards are open to U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and with some limitations, foreign nationals in all fields of science and engineering.

Ford Foundation Fellowship Program
Through its Fellowship Program, the Ford Foundation seeks to increase the diversity of the nation’s college and university faculties. Administered by the National Research Council (NRC) since 1979, these programs provide fellowship support at the predoctoral, dissertation and postdoctoral levels. Eligibility is limited to U.S. citizens who can demonstrate superior academic achievement, are committed to a career in teaching and research at the college or university level, show promise of future achievement as scholars and teachers, and are well prepared to use diversity as a resource for enriching the education of all students.

Jefferson Science Fellowship
Recognizing that knowledge of state-of-the-art science, technology, and engineering (STE) is essential to the formulation and implementation of U.S. government policy, the Secretary of State began the Jefferson Science Fellows (JSF) program at the U.S. Department of State, in 2003. Tenured academic scientists and engineers from U.S. institutions of higher learning are eligible. Fellows spend one year at the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C. Following the fellowship year, the Jefferson Science Fellow returns to his/her academic career, but remains available to the U.S. government as an experienced consultant for short-term projects.

The Fellowships Office is a unit of the Policy and Global Affairs division at the National Research Council.

Naval Research Laboratory (NRL)

As corporate research laboratory of the Navy, the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) conducts a broadly based multidisciplinary program of scientific research in advanced technological development, techniques, systems, and related operational procedures. NRL is one of the largest scientific institutions within the US government.

Established in 1923, NRL still occupies its original site on the Potomac River in Washington, DC. Additional facilities are located at Stennis Space Center, MS; Monterey, CA; and other support facilities and field-experiment sites throughout Maryland and Virginia.

Current research interests focus on such areas as computer science, artificial intelligence, plasma physics, acoustics, radar, fluid dynamics, chemistry, materials science, optical sciences, condensed matter and radiation sciences, electronics science, environmental sciences, marine geosciences, remote sensing, oceanography, marine meteorology, space technology, and space sciences. Facilities include a Connection Machine computer; a high-power gyrotron laboratory; a large-aperture, high-resolution towed thermistor chain; a 4-TW accelerator; a 3-MV tandem Van de Graaff; versatile facilities for high-magnetic-field and cryogenics research; light-gas guns for studying hypervelocity impact; a 300-m3 pressurizable chamber for combustion studies; extensive facilities for studying mechanical properties of materials; a variety of gas and solid-state lasers; one of the world's largest anechoic chambers; a micro-electronics facility, molecular beam epitaxy facilities; a combined wave and wind channel; a physical acoustic center; deep ocean and shallow water instrumentation; oceanographic equipment for optical measurements; geophysical/acoustic deep-towed measurement system; a new magnetic observatory; aircraft-mounted multispectral scanner; electromagnetic sensor system; and experimental satellite development and test facilities.

NRL has a continuing need for scientists and engineers in many fields of research. For this reason, NRL conducts postdoctoral fellowship programs with the objectives of (1) providing postdoctoral scientists and engineers of unusual promise and ability the opportunity for research on problems that are compatible with the interest of the Navy and (2) contributing to the overall efforts of NRL by the stimulus offered to research programs by the presence of bright, highly motivated, recent doctoral graduates.
