Faculty members considered for appointment to these fellowships should hold regular, on-going faculty positions at UT Austin and should be actively engaged in the instruction of freshman undergraduates. The Vice Provost solicits nominations from the UT Austin Deans. All nominations are compiled and reviewed by the Vice Provost, who then makes recommendations to the Provost for final approval. Four recipients are awarded each year - two faculty members appointed for one semester to each of the fellowships (two in fall and two in spring). Salary Supplement.
