Fellowships offer faculty the opportunity to expand their research and teaching, explore new research areas, and grow professionally over a period of a couple of months to a full year. Sponsored by external organizations, fellowships can take place in the U.S. or abroad and are available to faculty across all ranks – assistant, associate, and full professor. Unlike other sponsored funding, which is awarded to the College, most fellowships are awarded directly to individual faculty members.
The following is a select list of fellowships that may interest you. The OSP can provide limited guidance and support with fellowship applications. Please contact our office if you need assistance in identifying other opportunities or have questions about applying to a particular fellowship program.
Additional opportunities will be added as we learn about them.
