SCUP Fellows Program

We Build Leaders in Higher Education Planning

The Fellows Experience

The SCUP Fellows Award, supported by The SCUP Fund, is designed to build higher education leaders and help them bring their innovative ideas and pioneering solutions forward. One to two SCUP Fellows are selected annually through a competitive process. The program fellowship is one year. 

SCUP Fellows:

  • Network with higher education leaders who focus on emerging best planning practices
  • Are coached by SCUP members to expand their knowledge of planning and to build their professional networks
  • Initiate and complete a research project of their choosing that contributes to SCUP’s knowledge base of integrated planning
  • Share the outcomes of their project with our constituency at the conclusion of their fellowship at SCUP’s annual conference and through other SCUP resources 

The SCUP Fellows application process will open November 2018. 


Applicants must be employed by a college or university throughout the duration of their SCUP Fellow 2018-19 term, and have a letter of recommendation from their institution.
