Political Science PhD student Cameryn Blackmore was recently named a 2017-2018 APSA Minority Fellow. The Minority Fellows Program is a fellowship competition for individuals from underrepresented backgrounds applying to or in the early stages of doctoral programs in political science, according to its website. The MFP was established in 1969 to increase the number of minority scholars in the discipline. Each year APSA awards up to 12 funded fellowships in the amount of $4,000 for the fall cycle and 23 awards ranging between $500-$1,000 for the spring cycle, to support doctoral degree expenses. You can read more about this outstanding accomplishment on the APSA website.
Also, the College of Arts & Sciences has an article about Ms. Blackmore and her award in the February 2018 edition of Desktop News.
