Courses and workshops will be available to enhance the research skills necessary for securing a tenure-track faculty position at Kean or elsewhere at the conclusion of the fellowship.

Applications will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis through January 15, 2021. Interviews and offers will be made through March 1, 2021. Start dates will be arranged in consultation with the faculty mentor and may begin as early as July 2021, but no later than September 1, 2021.
