Eisenhower HBCU Fellowship

The Dwight David Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship Program is a national program that awards fellowships to students pursuing degrees in transportation-related disciplines. The Eisenhower Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Fellowship provides HBCU students with additional opportunities to pursue transportation-related education. HBCU Fellowships also serve as a feeder for other Eisenhower fellowships. The fellowships are open to juniors, seniors and graduate and doctoral students.

Dr. Celeste Chavis is the campus manager for the Eisenhower program. She oversees a local competition among applicants, who are ranked by a panel after the competition. The rankings then go to the Federal Highway Administration, which decides which students will be funded and the amount of their fellowships. Last year, 175 Eisenhower Fellowship awards were made to undergraduate and graduate students at universities across the nation.

Those interested in applying for fiscal year 2016 can contact Dr. Chavis at celeste.chavis@morgan.edu. For more information, visit www.fhwa.dot.gov/tpp/ddetfp.htm.
