Ford Foundation Diversity Fellowships
The Ford Foundation offers annual diversity fellowships for predoctoral, postdoctoral, and dissertation-stage candidates. The fellowships are intended "to increase the diversity of the nation's college and university faculties by increasing their ethnic and racial diversity, to maximize the educational benefits of diversity, and to increase the number of professors who can and will use diversity as a resource for enriching the education of all students" (from the Web site). For information, visit www7.nationalacademies.org/FORDfellowships/.

Summer Institute for Intercultural Communication
The Intercultural Communication Institute, a nonprofit organization committed to intercultural communication as a means of minimizing detrimental cross-group conflict, offers summer programs at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. The programs are geared toward beginning, intermediate, and advanced learners and cover a range of topics, including campus diversity and global education. Early-bird registration runs until June 1, 2009. For more information, visit www.intercultural.org.

Educating for Personal and Social Responsibility
