STRC Faculty Professional Development Fellowship

The Faculty Professional Development Fellowship 2023 application cycle is now closed.

The STRC seeks applications for two, short-term Professional Development Fellowships for tenure-line faculty in the College of LAS who are working on subjects related to populations of color and who need time and space to learn new methods, content, and approaches outside their discipline to bolster the interdisciplinary reach of their scholarship and teaching. In keeping with the mission of the STRC, proposals should advance interdisciplinary humanities as tools for addressing the histories and contemporary structures of racism through healing, restoration, and social transformation.

LAS tenure-line faculty working in the humanities whose primary scholarly or creative field engages the histories and/or cultures of people of color (in the United States or in diaspora), are eligible to apply. Non-humanities faculty who wish to learn how to incorporate humanities methods, content, and approaches into their scholarship and teaching, are also eligible.

Fellowships will begin in July 2023 and continue through December 2023. Fellows will receive a stipend equivalent to one month of summer salary in July and August. Fellows will also receive paid leave from all teaching and service responsibilities in Autumn Quarter 2023.
