Fellowship in Leadership

Staff members who are ready to develop and share their leadership experience with undergraduate students may apply for the Fellowship in Leadership program.

You can learn more about the general program here. There are some considerations specific to staff Fellows as well:

  • You must have the endorsement of your supervisor prior to applying
  • You must be at an appropriate level of professional development to take on this role, as indicated by your supervisor
  • You should be able to fulfill your Fellowship responsibilities primarily within your standard work hours. This means your department supports a temporary reduction in your duties for the fall, winter and spring quarters in one academic year
  • There is no additional compensation to staff Fellows

Faculty may recommend graduate students for the Fellowship; PhD students are eligible for a $3,000 stipend. Faculty members should direct potential applicants to the Fellowship page for more information. You may also refer a graduate student to us via the Contact Us form.
