Daniel SolorzanoLOS ANGELES (Feb. 22, 2011)
— UC/ACCORD Executive Director Daniel Solorzano will be holding information sessions at various University of California campuses regarding the 2011 fellowship funding opportunities.

The first session will be held at 1:30 p.m. Thursday at UC Santa Cruz in Social Sciences 2, Room 121.

UC/ACCORD All Campus Consortium on Research for Diversity is accepting proposals until Friday, March 18 in three categories: Dissertation Fellowship, Postdoctoral Fellowship and Faculty Seed Grant. UC/ACCORD is interested in increasing the number of graduate students and faculty within the UC system whose work is consistent with the organization’s goals of making college a possibility for all California students, and increasing diversity within the state’s institutions of higher education.

Since 2001, UC/ACCORD has awarded 75 dissertation fellowships, 11 postdoctoral fellowships and 23 faculty seed grants, totaling about $2.5 million.

UC doctoral students in their final year of dissertation, recent graduates with a terminal degree from a UC school, and faculty interested in more information are invited to attend one of the nearby events.
