The Faculty Fellowship is open to AUK faculty whose research can be facilitated by access to Dartmouth’s libraries and museum collections. The Fellowship is also open to senior administrators pursuing professional development projects that can be guided by Dartmouth mentors. Fellows live in Hanover or a surrounding town (depends upon housing needs and availability), furthering their research, honing their professional skills, and participating in a range of campus activities.

An email from the President's office is sent around AUK in the fall to solicit applications for the Fellowship but applicants line up someone at Dartmouth to be their mentor before they apply. Some help is available from the Dartmouth-AUK Program office if needed.
AUK sent its first Faculty Fellow, art history professor Simon O′Meara, to Dartmouth in summer 2009. In summer 2010 Amir Zeid, assistant professor of computer engineering, came to Dartmouth, followed in summer 2011 by Mohamad Khattar Awad, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering. In summer 2012, Mohammed El Abd, assistant professor of computer engineering, worked with Jason Moore in the Institute for Quantitative Biomedical Sciences (iQBS) at Dartmouth and in 2013 Ghazi Nassir, associate professor of English, was a visiting scholar in the department of English at Dartmouth.
