Assistant Professor Constance Iloh is the 2018-2019 recipient of the distinguished UC Hellman Fellowship. Constance was selected from a large applicant pool across campus disciplines for this fellowship bestowed upon promising assistant professors showing great distinction in their field of research. This highly competitive fellowship program, established by the Warren and Chris Hellman family, supports the exemplary scholarship of junior faculty at the University of California. Each fellow is awarded up to $50,000 to support their research project proposal.
For her Hellman Fellowship, Constance will conduct a qualitative study on the trajectories and experiences of the growing "some college experience, no degree" adult student population seeking to return to higher education. This is a novel extension of her nationally-recognized research on the changing landscape of postsecondary education, college access, pervasive educational inequities, and the business of higher education.
