Planning for a Professional Improvement Leave Fellowship

Start Date
End Date

Hosted by the Office of Faculty Development

Are you considering applying for a Professional Improvement Leave Fellowship in the spring? In this workshop, you will learn about the application process and characteristics of what makes a successful application. A panel of recent fellowship recipients will share their application tips and strategies. The session will provide time for questions and discussion.

Professional Improvement Leave Fellowships provide a one-semester release for select non-tenure track faculty (excluding those with access to sabbaticals or those who are funded entirely on grants or contracts) who have completed six years of service. Professional Improvement Leave Fellowships support professional improvement activities that directly relate to the faculty member’s job responsibilities and/or advance important initiatives for their department or college.
