Fellowships offered for junior faculty leaders

Junior faculty members face a great many demands in the years before tenure: teach, publish, advise students, serve on committees, demonstrate engagement in and beyond the campus community.

Even during those demanding early years, many future faculty leaders are already showing their tremendous promise, as Nancy Malkiel WF ’65 did in 1974, when she first served on a selection committee for the Woodrow Wilson Dissertation Fellowship in Women’s Studies. The next year, 1975—the same year she was tenured—Dr. Malkiel was elected to the Board of Trustees of the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.

Now, in honor of Dr. Malkiel’s 40th year of service on the Woodrow Wilson Board, the Foundation is offering the one-time-only Nancy Weiss Malkiel Junior Faculty Fellowship [link]. Five awards of $10,000 will be offered to emerging faculty leaders whose careers promise—like Dr. Malkiel’s—to play a significant role in shaping American higher education. Learn more about Dr. Malkiel and the Fellowship here. The application deadline is December 1.
