The Fellows Experience

The SCUP Fellows Award, supported by the Annual Fund, is designed to build higher education leaders and help them bring their innovative ideas and pioneering solutions forward. One to two SCUP 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 coached by SCUP members to expand their knowledge of planning and to build their professional networks
  • Initiate and complete a research project of their choosing that contributes to SCUP’s knowledge base of integrated planning
  • 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

  • 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), and two hotel nights and a $750 stipend toward each meeting.
  • Registration to one step of SCUP’s three-step Planning Institute

Eligibility

Applicants must be employed by a college or university throughout the duration of their SCUP Fellow 2018-19 term, and have a letter of recommendation from their institution.


The SCUP Fellows program helped me advance my career, and it continues to provide entree into national and international discussions on higher education's future.
