Inaugural Cohort Announced for Provost’s Authors Fellowship

In an effort to provide increased support for associate professors pursuing promotion to full professor, 17 faculty members have been selected for the Provost’s Authors Fellowship.

This new program provides financial and programmatic support to faculty members engaged in the development and publication of scholarly books, and is intended to provide greater support to pursue research and scholarship at a critical point in their careers. The fellowship begins in June 2019 and will last 15 months.

“My hope is this program will be a meaningful way the university can better support the goals of our outstanding faculty members who work in book publishing fields,” said Maurie McInnis, executive vice president and provost at UT Austin. “As I was reading the applications, I was truly amazed at the scholarship of our faculty and I am excited to hear about the progress that is made through the support of this fellowship.”
