The Tisch Faculty Fellows program convenes a diverse group of faculty members from across Tufts University for interdisciplinary discussions about teaching and research and builds the capacity of Tufts faculty to integrate civic engagement into their work. Faculty Fellows develop a course, research project, or other initiative designed to strengthen the connections between their individual disciplines and civic life. They receive a stipend that can be used for salary or research/teaching expenses, and they meet four times per semester to share perspectives and discuss common themes, challenges, and resources. To date, more than 100 colleagues, representing every Tufts school, have participated in the program, which is open to any member of the Tufts University faculty.

Apply to be a Tisch Faculty Fellow for 2019-2020
Tisch College is pleased to offer fellowships to Tufts faculty from across the University to be Tisch Faculty Fellows for the 2019-2020 academic year. Selected Fellows receive an award up to $5,000 for the year. Fellows may come from those with a Tufts faculty appointment(tenure stream or full time lecturers) or those who are benefits-eligible teaching employees (e.g., instructors in the life sciences). Fellows are expected to participate in eight seminar-style discussions during the academic year and to complete their proposed project which has been approved in advance by Tisch.
