The American Political Science Association (APSA) is pleased to announce that Travis N. Taylor, a second year PhD student at the University of Kentucky, has been named as a 2017-2018 APSA Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) Fellow, Spring Cycle.
“As a proud citizen of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, I am pleased to accept this Fellow designation from APSA and to represent the Cherokee people in the discipline of political science,” Taylor said.
The MFP was established in 1969 to increase the number of under-represented scholars in the political science discipline.

Fall fellows are college or university seniors, graduates, or Master’s students who plan on applying to a PhD program in political science. Spring fellows are first and second year PhD students in political science. APSA Minority Fellows are very active in the discipline as faculty members, researchers, and mentors.
