SCUP Fellows

Launching the Next Generation of Planning Leaders

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. Fellows receive a unique professional development opportunity and make an important contribution to the higher education planning community.

SCUP Fellows will initiate and complete a research project that contributes to SCUP’s knowledge base of integrated planning. The outcomes of their research are shared at the conclusion of their fellowship at SCUP’s Annual Conference and through a final report.

Contribute to the Future of Planning

Your gifts to the SCUP Fund make this program possible. The SCUP Fund supports research and initiatives that drive innovative ideas and enterprising solutions for higher education viability and vitality.
