Eligibility:

The Fellowship Program is open to all individuals who are academic or creative professionals and who have completed a terminal degree within the last five years or who will have completed a terminal degree by the begnning of fall classes.  "All but dissertation" candidates will be considered on a case-by-case basis; for ABD Fellows, degree completion requirements will be outlined at the time offer. Applicants must be able to demonstrate a commitment to their academic field as well as a commitment to the principles of inclusive excellence.

Awards:

UW-Whitewater will award up to four in-residence Inclusive Excellence Fellowships each academic year.  The one-year academic appointments begin in August of the academic year and end in May of the following year. In some cases, fellowships might be extended for a second year. Fellows will serve on the Chancellor's Committee on Inclusive Excellence and assist in developing the campus Inclusive Excellence Forums. They will also teach four to five courses per year in their academic area and contribute to college and departmental inclusive excellence initiatives and activities. 

Mentorship:

Each Fellow will be paired with a teacher/scholar who will provide mentorship and support and whose role it is to facilitate opportunities for engagement with UW-Whitewater inclusive excellence initiatives.  Fellows will also have opportunities to work with students in the university's Undergraduate Research Program whose research interests align with their own.  Fellows will have access to the university's LEARN Center, the Learning Technology Center, and the Whitewater University Technology Park's Innovation Center.

Compensation and Allowances:

Fellows receive a competitive nine-month salary and research allowance.  The University of Wisconsin System offers a comprehensive benefits package to meet the diverse needs of our community.  The university contributes toward the cost of several benefit plans, which are a valuable piece of your total compensation.  Other plans offer favorable group rates and convenient payroll deduction to employees.  Some health and life insurance premiums are taken from your salary on a pre-tax basis, saving you money.
