The program is a two-year in-residence fellowship that supports promising scholars who are committed to diversity in the academy and to prepare those scholars for possible tenure track appointments. During the two-year appointment, the university provides fellows with teaching and research mentors, and professional development opportunities across campus. Fellowship recipients are provided with a stipend, health benefits, and additional funding for conference travel and the preparation of scholarly work.
