The National Science Foundation-funded Aspire Alliance’s Institutional Change Initiative (IChange), which is led by APLU and the University of Georgia, is excited to announce it is accepting applications for its IAspire Leadership Academy. Applications are due April 17.
The academy elevates the preparedness of academic leaders from underrepresented groups so they can aspire to and succeed in more senior leadership roles. The program offers fellowships to individuals from traditionally underrepresented groups (such as women in computer science or Latino/a and African-American faculty in most STEM fields) currently in formal or non-formal leadership roles in STEM higher education. Formal roles would include leadership roles such as department heads and non-formal roles such as college-level committee chairs.
IAspire Leadership Fellows will gain critical leadership skills across numerous competencies. They will have opportunities to learn how to lead more effectively in increasingly complex environments and build confidence to influence institutional transformation either in their current position or as they rise to other positions of leadership. The total cost of the program, including hotel, is $10,000. The NSF INCLUDES Aspire grant covers $5,000 of the total.
