Provost’s Office Launches New Early Career Fellowship Program

Four units have been selected for participation in the inaugural cohort of the UT Austin Provost’s Early Career Fellows program designed to further the university’s commitment to building a vibrant interdisciplinary community of scholars.

The purpose of this training program is to allow early career researchers, postdoctoral fellows and graduating PhD students to develop and pursue research and teaching topics upon which a future academic career can be built. The program will enable Fellows to build a network of emerging scholars and benefit from the mentorship of top faculty in their field.

Provost’s Early Career Fellow will join an energetic community of other incoming fellows training in different departments across the university and will receive a competitive stipend, fringe benefits, relocation funds, travel funds, and discretionary funds.
