SUNY PRODiG Fellowship Consortium


The SUNY PRODiG Fellowship Consortium represents a collaborative effort of the thirteen comprehensive colleges in the SUNY system and is a unique initiative to increase faculty diversity on our campuses.  This fellowship program supports late-stage pre-doctoral and post doctoral students who are interested in academic careers. The initiative supports the pipeline to the academy for historically under-represented minority faculty and women in STEM fields.

The comprehensive college sector invites early-career diverse faculty to explore the opportunities at these predominantly undergraduate institutions.  This enriching experience includes outstanding mentorship, early career development support, and the opportunity to become a member of a collaborative network of scholars across the state.

PRODiG Fellows will receive a two-year non-renewable contract, travel allowances, summer research stipends, moving expenses, and reduced teaching load. Annual compensation is competitive. Fellows will be paired with a campus senior faculty member to help facilitate integration and support, and will be a part of a larger cohort of PRODiG Fellows across the SUNY system who will meet (both face-to-face and virtually) throughout the two-year fellowship. The fellowship is open to a wide range of fields.

SUNY Old Westbury offers fellowship opportunities within The School of Arts and Sciences, The School of Business and The School of Education. Visit the listing of SUNY Old Westbury's offerings for access to program-specific information.
