The McKnight Doctoral Fellowship Program: Toward a Seamless Approach to the Production of African American Doctorates
Dawkins, Marvin P.
Journal of Negro Education, v75 n3 p563-571 Sum 2006
The McKnight Doctoral Fellowship Program (MDFP) in Florida addresses the issue of under-representation of African American doctorates by adopting a "seamless" approach in supporting African-Americans pursuing a doctoral degree and beyond. The success of the MDFP suggests a need to reconsider graduate support for minority students that does not address the full range of factors leading to successful completion of the doctorate.
