SUNY Pipeline to Academic Careers

SUNY has created a Comprehensive College Consortium to fund late-stage pre-doctoral (ABD) and post-doctoral students interested in exploring academic careers. The consortium represents a collaboration among all SUNY comprehensive sector campuses. The initiative creates a more robust pathway into the academy for historically under-represented minority faculty and women in STEM fields. The PRODiG Fellowship Initiative is a model program designed to raise the pace of degree completion and build a more robust pipeline to the professoriate. Personalized mentoring is a key component of the program to develop fellows’ pedagogical readiness for future faculty appointments in addition to support for their scholarship and research.

Benefits for PRODiG Fellows

The PRODiG Fellowship Initiative brings new talent to the thirteen teacher-centered comprehensive campuses. Fellows can build their teaching skills and portfolios during their fellowship at a comprehensive sector campus. This preparation will build the "next-generation" of faculty.
