DESCRIPTION

The Leaders Award of the Mellon Emerging Faculty supports tenure-track faculty who have passed their midpoint check. The award is designed to free up the time of junior faculty who have passed their midpoint tenure examination, including those from underrepresented groups and those who are dedicated to eradicating inequalities in their fields so that they can both participate and create support structures, networks, and affinity groups that make their fields and campuses more inclusive. Eligible candidates must have had their third-year examination or the equivalent of their institution passed.
