The Public Service and Outreach (PSO) Fellowship Program provides departmental support for tenure-track and tenured professors to immerse themselves in the work of a PSO unit for one semester. The experience offers opportunities for Fellows to enhance their academic courses, conduct research (e.g., applied, community-based, policy, program evaluation) and apply their academic expertise to outreach initiatives. An anticipated outcome of the Fellowship experience is the sustained involvement with Public Service and Outreach after the semester ends.
Permanent, full-time, tenure-track and tenured faculty members who have an interest in immersing themselves in the work of one of UGA’s PSO units are eligible to apply. A list of PSO units can be found here.
To be considered for selection as a PSO Fellow, an eligible faculty member works with the director of a PSO unit to develop and submit a proposal to the Office of the Vice President for Public Service and Outreach by Friday, March 23, 2018.
The proposal consists of the following four items:
The Vice President for PSO provides $15,000 to a Fellow’s home department, which may be spent as the department head deems appropriate.
A PSO Fellow and her/his hosting PSO unit director meet with the vice president at the beginning and end of the fellowship semester. In addition, a PSO Fellow provides a written report about her/his experience at the end of the fellowship semester, including recommendations for potential sustained involvement with PSO after the semester ends.
