Henderson Fellowship Program

Henderson Fellowship Program

The George Washington Henderson Fellowship Program was established in honor of the memory of George Washington Henderson who was one of the first African American students elected to Phi Beta Kappa and to graduate from the University of Vermont in the class of 1877. In cooperation with academic departments, the program sponsors pre-doctoral and post-doctoral scholars who will help advance the university's research and teaching goals and assist UVM in reaching its diversity goals, especially with respect to the academic curriculum.

The UVM Henderson Fellowship Program are field specific and these fields change from year to year. Henderson Fellows are supported for up to two years (fellowships are renewable after the first year) and are offered either as a two-year pre-doc/post-doc fellowship. Fellows pursue their own publication, research agenda, and teach or co-teach one course per semester. U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents (LPR) are eligible to apply.

The Henderson Fellowship Program is administered by the Office of the Vice President for Human Resources, Diversity and Multicultural Affairs.
