UW Office of Engagement and Outreach Faculty Engagement Fellowship Applications Available

March 23, 2020

The University of Wyoming Office of Engagement and Outreach (OEO) invites UW faculty members to submit proposals for Faculty Engagement Fellowships available in 2020-21.

There will be four awards given. Applications are due by 5 p.m. Friday, April 3. 

The goal of these fellowships is to invite proposals from a broad range of disciplines across UW from people working in public engagement, engaged teaching, engaged scholarship and service focused on community impacts. 

Proposals can be from one individual or represent a partnership of up to two people who would share the stipend. Fellows will commit to two to three meetings per semester to share and workshop projects collaboratively with faculty and outreach specialists; participate in OEO-sponsored programming, including faculty development seminars; and organize at least one significant engagement/outreach project/program series both on and off campus that focuses on faculty development and/or enhances engagement and outreach in their field of study.  

These awards are planned for faculty working on projects across the 2020-21 academic year. Fellows will receive a stipend of $10,000 and up to $2,000 to support outreach programs and travel expenses.  Those awarded Faculty Engagement Fellowships join a select group of faculty fellows chosen in the inaugural competition in October 2019.

The types of awards are as follows:

-- OEO Faculty Engagement Fellowship. This award is open to a faculty member in any field of study. 

-- OEO-CGS International Faculty Engagement Fellowship. This award is funded through the Center for Global Studies (CGS) and open to a faculty member in any field of study who will connect the world to Wyoming and vice versa.

-- OEO Malcolm Wallop Faculty Engagement Fellowship. This award is funded through the Malcolm Wallop Civic Engagement project and open to any faculty member whose work is in civic engagement projects/programming that support discussions/projects on issues of significant public interest.

Those eligible for the fellowships include full-time, tenured/tenure-track faculty members or academic professional lecturers, research scientists and extension educators (extended-term track). Eligible faculty include instructors, professors at all ranks, as well as archivists, clinical professors, executive professors, extension educators, faculty development professionals, instructional professionals, lecturers, librarians, professors of practice, research professors and research scientists.

Special consideration will be given for interdisciplinary collaborative projects involving faculty working with graduate students or undergraduate students; proposals that enhance K-12 and community college partnerships; and/or proposals that build new capacity in collaborative and interdisciplinary engagement and outreach with a Wyoming community. Each proposal should clearly demonstrate how the proposed project addresses UW’s land-grant mission, broader engagement and outreach mission, and a breadth of campus and community impacts. For more information, see the OEO strategic plan

The CGS and Wallop fellowships represent a partnership between OEO and CGS, or the Wallop Civic Engagement Program.  

The OEO-CGS International Faculty Fellow will work directly with OEO and CGS to promote their engaged scholarship/teaching/service; coordinate with colleagues who are internationally engaged; and accomplish international engagement and programming in Wyoming. The fellow will be chosen by the directors of OEO and CGS.

The OEO Wallop Faculty Fellow will work directly with OEO to help build capacity in its civic engagement-themed programming and project development. The specific focus is open, but proposals should address a civic engagement topic focused on an issue or issues of significant public concern in partnership with Wyoming communities that enhance scholarship, teaching and/or student service.

Fellows are expected to work directly with the OEO director, UW’s Engagement Council and faculty across campus to build UW’s capacity in the area of identified community engagement and outreach. The strongest proposals should contain both a statewide and a campus component, and include a discussion on potential community college and K-12 collaborations.

These components can include participating in or organizing campus professional development seminars; an inreach activity for a campus and/or off-campus audience; and off-campus programs/projects within their area of expertise such as a Saturday University program.  

Applications must be submitted with the required supporting materials as one electronic Word or PDF file and emailed to OEO at engage@uwyo.edu by 5 p.m. Friday, April 3. Notification of awards will be made by Wednesday, April 15. All travel/outreach program funds must be spent by June 15, 2021.

For more information, email engage@uwyo.edu or call 766-5202.
