Young woman leading a discussion

The Professional Development Fellowship Pilot Program will provide funds to help support colleges to provide a one-semester teaching release (full or partial) for selected non-tenure track faculty at the rank of Senior Lecturer, Senior Instructor, Clinical or Teaching Associate or full Professor with six or more years of full-time equivalent service. Fellowships will be granted to increase the faculty member's value to the University through enhanced opportunities for professional renewal, educational travel, study, formal training, or other experiences of professional value.
