PRODiG Fellowship


The State University of New York (SUNY) has created a Comprehensive College Consortium to fund late-stage pre-doctoral (ABD) and post-doctoral students interested in exploring academic careers. The consortium represents a collaboration among all SUNY comprehensive sector campuses. The initiative creates a more robust pathway into the academy for historically under-represented minority faculty and women in STEM fields. The PRODiG Fellowship Initiative is a model program designed to raise the pace of degree completion and build a more robust pipeline to the professoriate. Personalized mentoring is a key component of the program to develop fellows' pedagogical readiness for future faculty appointments in addition to support for their scholarship and research.

  • Evidence of outstanding academic achievement and promise as teachers and scholars.
  • A capacity to respond in pedagogically productive ways to the learning needs of diverse students attending a comprehensive college.
