Faculty Fellowships


Faculty Fellowships

Faculty Fellowships (Summer Stipend, Fall / Spring at Full Salary, Academic Year at Half Salary) are awarded to tenured and non-tenured tenure track faculty in accordance with University Statute 4-05.10.

Fordham University's University Research Council considers the award of a Faculty Fellowship to be a form of University investment in a faculty member's future productivity, and therefore has an expectation that an awarded faculty member both (i) return to Fordham University at the conclusion of the Fellowship period; and (ii) acknowledge his/her receipt of a Fordham Faculty Fellowship in any outcomes that result (e.g., publication).

To apply for a Faculty Fellowship, please click on the following link:

Faculty Fellowship Report Update
As Faculty Fellowship projects often take some time to yield publications, external funding for research and other outcomes, faculty are asked to use the above update form to provide the Office of Research with current information about these outcomes. This information is crucial for the evaluation and continuing support of this program for faculty scholarly development.
