Launching the Next Generation of Planning Leaders

With the SCUP Fellows program, we’re taking higher education planning to a higher level. The SCUP Fellows program is designed to strengthen higher education leaders who seek to carry out new research that contributes to SCUP’s knowledge base of integrated planning.

Each year, two SCUP Fellows are selected to participate in the one-year fellowship. The program is open to members and non-members alike.

About the SCUP Fellows Program

SCUP Fellows:

  • Initiate and complete a research project of their choosing that contributes to SCUP’s knowledge base of integrated planning
  • Receive coaching from the SCUP community to expand their knowledge of planning and to build their professional networks
  • Share the outcomes of their project with our constituency at the conclusion of their fellowship at SCUP’s annual conference and through a final report
  • Network and connect with higher education leaders who focus on emerging planning best practices

SCUP Fellows receive:

  • Two years of SCUP membership
  • Two registrations to SCUP’s annual conference (one at the start of the Fellows program and one at the end), two nights of lodging for each of the two conferences, and two $750 stipends that can assist with travel, an additional hotel night, registration to another SCUP event, and expenses
  • Registration to one workshop of SCUP’s Planning Institute series
