Dads’ Association Centennial Teaching Fellowships

About the Fellowships

At its August 1983 meeting, The University of Texas System Board of Regents established two Dads’ Association Centennial Teaching Fellowships. Funds for one endowed fellowship were raised by the UT Austin Dads’ Association under the leadership of Mr. Ralph Spence, and the other endowed fellowship was established with matching funds under the Centennial Teachers and Scholars Program. Faculty members considered to these fellowships should be actively engaged in the instruction of freshman undergraduates.
