The National Science Foundation-funded Aspire Alliance’s Institutional Change Initiative (IChange), which APLU and the University of Georgia lead, is excited to announce it is accepting applications for its IAspire Leadership Academy.
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 program fee for fellows (valued at $10,000) is reduced to $7,500 with the remainder covered by the NSF INCLUDES Grant.
