AdvanceVT PhD and Postdoctoral Fellowship Program : Summary Report
MetadataShow full item record
AdvanceVT supported ten postdoctoral fellows and nine PhD fellows during academic years 2004-05, 2005-06, 2006-07, and 2007-08, years two through five of the grant. The fellowships supported young scholars preparing for a faculty career, especially individuals from groups historically underrepresented in the professoriate. A mentoring plan was a key component of the fellowship, ensuring that the fellow developed appropriate knowledge and skills with support from senior colleagues. A member of the AdvanceVT leadership team met with each fellow and her mentor(s) mid-way through the fellowship year to review progress on the mentoring plan, and fellows were asked to report on the outcomes of their fellowship at the end of the year. All fellows reported at least one publication or conference presentation developed as a result of the fellowship.
