2011 Future Faculty Fellowship Program

January 27, 2011

The Future Faculty Fellowship Program (FFFP) is a 5-day, intensive, interdisciplinary program for senior-level graduate students, conducted by the Center for Faculty Excellence (CFE). The program was developed in collaboration with Student Government, the Graduate and Professional Student Federation, the Office of the Provost, and the Graduate School. It is designed to meet professional development goals by improving the instructional planning and teaching skills of new Teaching Fellows who are assigned to independently teach undergraduate courses at UNC-Chapel Hill and by preparing them to meet their future faculty responsibilities in research, service, and leadership.

The May 2011 FFFP will be May 9-13 in the Pleasants Family Assembly Room of Wilson Library. To apply for the program, graduate students should complete the application on the CFE website.

The program is limited to 24 participants selected from the group of graduate students completing the application process, which includes an essay on why they want to participate in the program, a letter of recommendation from a faculty member, and some additional information about their experiences with teaching and learning. The deadline for submission of applications and faculty recommendations is February 14. Students will be notified of acceptance on February 28.

The FFFP will be repeated in August with an application deadline of May 16.
