Public Engagement Project Invites Faculty Fellowship Applications

The Public Engagement Project invites applications from tenure-track faculty for its spring 2020 Public Engagement Fellowships.

Public Engagement Faculty fellows will develop a fellowship plan tailored to their expertise and aspirations for reaching broader publics. They will receive technical training in communicating with non-academic audiences, cultivate networks to reach those publics and workshop their policy brief, blog, op-ed or other public engagement products.

Faculty Fellows will meet throughout the 2020 spring semester, attending panels and skill-building workshops offered by faculty, communications experts from University Relations and others experienced with public engagement. Fellows will also have the opportunity to work in small groups and receive peer mentoring tailored to their engagement plan, as well as to present their research to Massachusetts lawmakers.

In addition to opportunities for skill development, networking, and outreach, Public Engagement Faculty Fellows will receive a $1,000 stipend for their research account.
