Frederick Douglass Scholars
Edinboro University of Pennsylvania
In keeping with Frederick Douglassí life of public service and commitment to equity and access, the Frederick Douglass Institutes of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) are offering teaching opportunities to graduate students who are pursuing careers as university faculty.
The Douglass Scholars Fellowship is designed to provide professional experiences, mentoring and potential employment opportunities within universities that are strongly committed to cultural diversity.
Fellows are sought whose research, teaching, or service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion. Applicants from diverse cultural backgrounds, especially those from historically underrepresented groups, are encouraged to apply.
As a Frederick Douglass Teaching Fellow, scholars will teach and/or co-teach during the Summer Sessions, continue their research, and contribute to the life of the university. Dates of employment vary among universities,
but typically run from May 2017 thru August 2017. At the discretion of individual campuses, Douglass scholar applicants may also be considered for full or partial year appointments.
Scholars will be compensated as adjunct faculty, according to each universityís collective bargaining agreement. Additionally, Fellows may be provided housing and travel. The appointment is for the scholar alone, not families, and scholars are responsible for their own local transportation. Faculty benefits (office space, computer and network access, and library privileges) are also provided.
