The Lender Center for Social Justice Seeks Applications for Next Faculty Fellow
The Lender Center for Social Justice is seeking applications for its 2021-2023 faculty fellow. The deadline for the next round of applications has been extended to Thursday, Apr. 1 at 5 p.m.
The Lender Faculty Fellowship will support a two-year research agenda to critically and creatively explore contemporary social issues, develop innovative approaches to these problems and implement useful and sustainable initiatives.
The selected faculty fellow will work with a team of student fellows to create an interdisciplinary research team focused on the proposed social issue. The Lender Symposium will serve as the culmination of the two-year projects with invited national guests and experts participating in a thorough discussion of the research and proposals developed by the Lender fellows’ team.
Faculty applying for the Lender fellowship should be dynamic and accomplished scholar/teachers who are committed to an agenda of engaging issues relevant to social justice. They will be expected to foster an interdisciplinary team that will simultaneously encourage student learning and growth and the pursuit of concrete engagement with real-world problems.
The faculty fellow will receive research support for both years of the project, a summer stipend and additional resources to facilitate the development and execution of their project as well as to publicize the results.
Only Syracuse University full-time faculty, either tenure or non-tenure track, are eligible for the Lender Faculty Fellowship. For more information on how to apply and to submit an application, visit the Lender Center website.
