The PSO Scholarship Academy will provide knowledge, skills, time and support to focus on scholarly work.
The academy will assist PSO faculty and staff interested in disseminating their knowledge and learnings through policy papers, national conference presentations, and peer reviewed posters and articles. This 14-month program includes seven modules and an end of program symposium.
The deliverables for participants in the PSO Scholarship Academy include a completed manuscript with a plan for submission in an academic peer-reviewed journal, and one other scholarly product or activity (policy paper, conference presentation, poster presentation, ignite talks, etc.) that can come from the same body of research.
The academy is designed to provide participants with the knowledge, skills, and support structures, including coaches, mentors, and dedicated time, to successfully achieve the goals of the academy and complete the deliverables.
Expectations of the academy include active engagement and participation in all aspects of the program, which include in-person modules, inter-modular work with a mentor and a peer group and working as a participant pair.
