Advancing excellence through faculty diversity
The University of California President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program was established in 1984 to encourage outstanding women and minority Ph.D. recipients to pursue academic careers at the University of California. The current program offers postdoctoral research fellowships, professional development and faculty mentoring to outstanding scholars in all fields whose research, teaching, and service will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity at UC.
NEW UC President's Initiative
In 2013, University of California President Janet Napolitano committed $5 million to enhance the UC President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. The initiative will support (1) continuing the current salary hiring incentive, (2) instituting a new start-up funds hiring incentive for hires in STEM fields, and (3) professional development for fellows, new faculty and academic leaders.

The Partnership for Faculty Diversity
