Presidential Administrative Fellowship Program - 2013

The Office of the President announces the Spring 2013 Administrative Fellowship Program. The goal of the program is to provide senior administrative experience to faculty, and provide them the opportunity to appreciate and understand higher education administration. Populations historically under-represented in higher education administration are particularly encouraged to apply.

Description of the program: The program will support faculty on the Auburn University campus for a one semester, half-time (or full-time) administrative position (with the possibility of an additional semester) starting January 1, 2013 and ending May 15, 2013. 

The home academic department of the selected Fellow will be provided $12,500 for a half-time, one semester Fellow; or $25,000 for a full-time, one-semester Fellow to compensate for teaching responsibilities. This program is specifically designed to work in the Office of the President.

Eligibility:  The program is open to all tenured faculty on full-time appointments.  All applicants should have been employed by Auburn University for at least three years.  Participation in the program does not guarantee an administrative leadership appointment.  Associate Professors should be aware that participation in this fellowship program does not contribute to promotion to Full Professor. 

Application and selection process:  Each year, the Office of the President will announce the availability of a one semester administrative position (with the possibility of an additional semester).  To apply for a Presidential Administrative Fellowship, go to
on or before November 15, 2012 and submit the following:

  • Administrative Fellowship Program application form;

  • A suggested “special project” that the Presidential Administrative Fellow would like to undertake;
