A generous gift to the University from Alice Andrews Jepson ’64 and Robert Jepson, her husband, enabled the creation of the Jepson Fellows Program. This initiative is designed to enhance the University’s ability to recruit and retain the highest quality junior faculty members and to support them in their quest for promotions and tenure.
Each Fellowship award is for one full academic year, and the recipient will have his or her teaching load reduced by one half during the time of the Fellowship.
Because of the disruptions from the COVID-19 pandemic, no applications are being accepted for Jepson Fellowships at this time.
For information only, the last set of guidelines for Jepson Fellowship applications are provided below.
