Forum Fellowship

The Forum is pleased to announce a new program in support of our ongoing commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion. Inspired by the Forum Council, this fellowship will support education abroad professionals from HBCUs, Tribal Colleges, and Hispanic Serving Institutions. Up to five Fellowships will be awarded in 2020 and Fellows will be enrolled in The Forum’s Professional Certification in Education Abroad Program. Fellows will participate in the Accelerated Residency held at Dickinson College on June 22-24, 2020 to begin the Certification journey.

This unique opportunity will support the professional development of each Fellow by matching the Fellow with an experienced mentor, expanding the Fellow’s network of colleagues through participation in the Certification cohort, and providing the Fellow an in-depth introduction to the new 6th edition of the Standards of Good Practice.

Candidates with at least 3 years of experience in education abroad are encouraged to apply. In addition to registration for Accelerated Residency, three nights’ accommodations will be provided. Candidates or their institutions are expected to cover the cost of travel to/from Carlisle, Pennsylvania and the cost of breakfast and dinner (3 lunches are provided). Awardees will be notified by April 3, 2020 and must be available to participate in the June 2020 Accelerated Residency.

The deadline to apply is February 7, 2020.
