Mellon Graduate Fellows in U.S. Law and Race

Funded by the Mellon Foundation, this three-week residential fellowship program supports four graduate students at the University of Nebraska's U.S. Law and Race Initiative. The Mellon Graduate Fellows have the opportunity to advance their own research and writing projects addressing race and racialization in U.S. law and history, contribute to an Open Educational Resource, and engage with faculty mentors aiming to understand racialized people's use of the law to advance personhood, citizenship, rights, and sovereignty throughout American history.
