MFP APPLICANTS MUST BE ENROLLED IN A PROGRAM THAT GRANTS THE PHD IN SOCIOLOGY, AND HAVE COMPLETED ONE YEAR OF THE PROGRAM (AT THE PHD LEVEL) AT THE TIME OF APPLICATION.

Fellows must be citizens or non-citizen nationals of the U.S., have been lawfully admitted to the U.S. for permanent residence, or be eligible under DACA.
