W. E. B. Du Bois Institute

The W. E. B. Du Bois Institute for African and African-American Research is located at Harvard University and was established in 1969. It is named after W. E. B. Du Bois, who was the first African American to receive a Ph.D. from Harvard University (1895).[1]

The Institute awards up to twenty fellowships annually to scholars at various stages in their careers in the fields of African and African-American studies to facilitate the writing of doctoral dissertations. The Institute is also involved in the community through the W. E. B. Du Bois Society.[2]

Henry Louis Gates, Jr. is the director of the Institute.
