Applications Are Open for the Community Fellows Program!

Published on:

Interested in becoming a 2020-2021 Community Fellow?

Fellowships will provide funding for full-time Penn State University faculty members for up to two course releases (or the equivalent time for non-teaching faculty) across one or two academic years (up to $7,500 per course release for a total of $15,000).  Fellows are also eligible to apply for Community Collaboration funds (up to $5,000 for community activities, described below).  Faculty teams of two can divide the course release funds between them. Commonwealth campus faculty are strongly encouraged to apply.

Applications should first be submitted for approval to the faculty member’s department/program head. Once the Head’s approval is obtained, the application should be forwarded to the candidate’s Chancellor/Dean. The Community Fellows Call will be yearly, and for each call, Chancellors/Deans may submit two Community Fellows proposals.
