Apply for a Glennan Fellowship by April 5

Dr. T. Keith Glennan (1905-1995) was president of the Case Institute of Technology from 1947-1966. He felt strongly about education and led the development of a curriculum that established required courses in the humanities and social sciences for students majoring in science and engineering programs. Dr. Glennan believed that the most important contribution of higher education is the influence it has on young people as future leaders. This fellowship is named after Dr. Glennan, and it was created to facilitate faculty growth.

Each year, a faculty cohort of up to five Glennan Fellows is selected. Each Fellow will receive a $6,500 stipend to develop their teaching and scholarship and will attend monthly meetings with the cohort during the spring and fall semesters. Nominees must be tenure-track, though still untenured, for the duration of the fellowship. The award is granted based on nominees’ demonstrated potential for a career that combines both teaching and scholarship, as well as their investment in student learning. Therefore, nominees must provide evidence of scholarly engagement and contributions to student learning through teaching.

Evidence of scholarly engagement includes research, publications, books, grants, artistic achievements, and similar accomplishments. Evidence of contributions to student learning through teaching may be derived from work in the classroom or non-traditional settings; curricular and academic program development; educational innovations within or across disciplines; efforts to address the needs of special student groups; and/or engagement in other activities related to the science of teaching and learning.

Applicants should demonstrate how previous scholarly and pedagogical accomplishments support the development of the proposed project. Successful fellowship proposals typically include at least one of the following approaches:

  • the development of innovative teaching methods or instructional tools;
  • technological innovations to assist with student learning; and/or
  • the creation or revision of courses.
