For AUK Faculty

The Faculty Fellowship is open to AUK faculty whose research can be facilitated by access to Dartmouth’s libraries and museum collections. 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.
