Staff Fellowships

(Currently closed to new participants. Please check back for future fellowships.)

What is a staff fellowship?

In this context, they are short-term learning opportunities that place you in a setting where you can learn new skills or explore other careers at the university. In the 2020 pilot, a staff fellowship will consist of matching you with a university department or program, creating a plan that includes specific activities to be completed, and identifying an advisor to guide and support your experience. A fellowship will generally consist of 10 to 20 days that could be done all at once or incrementally, depending on the nature of the work to be done onsite and your responsibilities in your home department. The ideal participant is a UofL staff member who wants to grow professionally and learn about another facet of the university.

While there are many benefits to participating, the completion of a fellowship does not include the promise of a new position or a salary increase. Rather, it provides participants with new skills that can be leveraged in a job search and reflected on a resume, and exposure to a network of colleagues and experts who can be advocates.


  • Any UofL staff member, exempt or nonexempt, with at least two years of service;
  • The participant must show consistent performance appraisal review ratings of “Meets expectations” or higher;
  • Demonstrated enthusiasm for continued career growth and support of the university’s vision.
