SCUP Fellows Program

Your gifts support the SCUP Fellows program. Your contributions to The SCUP Fund create opportunities for the planning leaders of tomorrow and bring insights and ideas to solve the planning issues of today.

Do you have a research project idea that offers an enterprising approach or solution to a current challenge in higher education planning? 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. Your fellowship research could be the catalyst that unleashes fresh thinking, prompts a new strategy, or tackles a tough problem that advances higher education effectiveness. Learn more.

Each year, we select higher education leaders who propose innovative research ideas that will contribute to SCUP’s knowledge base of integrated planning. These research projects are catalysts that unleash fresh thinking, prompt a new strategy, or tackle a tough problem that advances higher education effectiveness.

Please take a few minutes to see how our SCUP Fellows contribute to SCUP’s body of higher education planning knowledge.

The SCUP Fellows program is now accepting applications for 2021-2022 fellowships.

Our Future

Your gifts to the SCUP Fund have a collective impact to help develop innovative programs and fuel cutting-edge planning research. Your gift will help accelerate integrated planning methodology, knowledge sharing, and progress.
