STRC Faculty Professional Development Fellowship

The Faculty Professional Development Fellowship 2024 application cycle opens Tuesday,  January 30th and closes Friday, February 23rd!

The STRC is seeking applications for its Professional Development Fellowship 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 2024 and continue through December 2024. Fellows will receive a stipend equivalent to one unit of summer salary in July and August. Fellows will also receive paid leave from all teaching and service responsibilities in Autumn Quarter 2024.
