Information for Faculty

We hope you find this information helpful. Please contact Keenan Dungey with any questions. Please also contact us with the names and contact information of students you want to refer for nationally competitive scholarships so they can have an initial appointment with the coordinator and complete an intake questionnaire. This helps us to follow up on student applications.

There are also competitive fellowships for faculty.  Please contact us if you are interested in applying. UIS is piloting the use of the Internal Clearance Form for these applications.

There are a number of different programs/tracks, including inviting visiting scholars from other countries.  Most deadlines Aug 1.

Faculty at UIS have been successful in obtaining Fulbrights (PDF list)! Contact Keenan Dungey for help with your application.
