Postdoc & Early Career

The program was developed to promote diversity at Massachusetts Maritime Academy in our faculty population by creating a potential pipeline as access for underrepresented individuals to gain teaching experience and, potentially, full time appointments. The program also aims to enhance the growth and awareness of MMA students by exposing them to greater diversity of thought and scholarship. These fellowships will enhance the academic careers of scholars who have recently received their Ph.D. degrees and are at the early stages of their careers.

These fellowships will enhance the academic careers of scholars who have recently received their Ph.D. degrees and are at the early stages of their careers. The program also potentially benefits the Academy by introducing and complementing existing curricula with underrepresented fields.
