SCUP Fellows Program

Building Emerging Leaders in Higher Education Planning

The Fellows Experience

The SCUP Fellows Award, supported by the Annual Fund, is designed to build emerging leaders in the area of higher education planning and to help them bring their fresh, innovative ideas and approaches forward to our broad constituency of planners. Two Fellows are selected annually through a competitive process. The program fellowship is one year. 

SCUP Fellows:

  • Network with higher education leaders who focus on emerging best planning practices
  • Are mentored by SCUP members to expand their knowledge of planning and to build their professional networks
  • Contribute to SCUP’s higher education knowledge base of integrated planning through a project of their own choosing
  • Share the outcomes of their project with our constituency at the conclusion of their fellowship at SCUP’s annual, international conference and through other SCUP resources 

SCUP Fellows Receive

  • One year of SCUP membership
  • Two full-conference registrations to SCUP’s annual, international conference (one at the start of the fellows program and one at the end), plus a $500 stipend toward each meeting
  • Registration to SCUP’s Planning Institute 1, or Planning Institute 2 (if a fellow has already attended the pre-requisite Planning Institute 1)
The Fellows program has helped me advance my career & continues to provide entree into national and international discussions on higher education’s future.
