“I chose the Carolina Postdoctoral Program for Faculty Diversity because no other postdoctoral program I am familiar with allows their diversity postdocs the time to focus exclusively on publishing without the demands of teaching… I also selected the Carolina Postdoctoral program because one of its stated objectives is to mentor its postdocs for their future academic careers.”

—Dr. Jocelyn Chua, Assistant Professor of Anthropology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

“I cannot say strongly enough what a difference the fellowship made to my academic development. The postdoc served as a reprieve for me: a chance to spend the time on acquisition of skills that I still needed. The quality of work I have been able to produce since then is due directly to the opportunity I was given in those two postdoc years.”

—Dr. Robin D.G. Kelley, Distinguished Professor of History & Gary B. Nash Endowed Chair in United States History, University of California, Los Angeles
