Provost's Fellowship Program

PROF Program

The Provost's Fellowship (PROF) Program is part of Dartmouth's ongoing efforts to diversify the professoriate. The PROF program aims to prepare early career scholars for long-term success in higher education. Through a partnership among the Frank J. Guarini School of Graduate and Advanced Studies, Arts and Sciences, and the Provost's Office, PROF Fellows benefit from Dartmouth's flagship role in cultivating teacher-scholars. We seek future faculty invested in the transformative impact of a liberal arts education who are also producing innovative research at the forefront of their fields. 

PROF Fellows are part of a multidisciplinary cohort of approximately ten predoctoral and postdoctoral scholars, all committed to increasing diversity in their disciplines. Fellows teach one course during their residency, participate in mentoring and professional development programming, and receive guidance in preparing for faculty job searches. They also hold research appointments in departments and programs, where they participate fully in campus life. 

The PROF program includes two types of fellowships: some are designated as dissertation-completion fellowships that convert to postdoctoral appointments in the second year; some are structured as one- or two-year postdoctoral appointments. Details on each fellowship can be found below. 

Please email if you have further questions or would like more information.

History

Most of the fellowships within the PROF program began at Dartmouth in the early 1990s: Marshall (1991), Eastman (1992), and Chávez (1994). Over this nearly thirty-year span, 70% of fellows have gone on to join the professoriate. Most recently, Dartmouth's 2016 Inclusive Excellence initiative has expanded this suite of fellowships by increasing their length, adding Asian American Studies, and establishing additional positions that rotate among departments. As of 2017, the PROF program brings all of these scholars together in a cohort model led by a faculty director.
