Internal Fellowships

The Wake Forest College Faculty Fellowships are fellowships that honor our best teacher-scholars.  Nominees should have distinguished themselves as particularly dedicated and successful teachers and mentors in their disciplines with a strong record of scholarly or creative activity.  Chairs and senior faculty are encouraged to submit nominations for faculty within their departments.  All nominations must be endorsed by the chair.

Eligibility and Qualifications:

Tenure Track Faculty and Tenured Faculty:  must be exemplary teacher-scholars with a commitment to mentoring students, and should also be outstanding citizens of our academic community.

Full-time Career Teaching Professionals:  must be exemplary teachers and mentors and should also have demonstrated exceptional service to their departments and the broader institution.  Typically, qualified teaching professionals will also have demonstrated involvement in and recognition by external organizations committed to the teaching of their disciplines.


For faculty interested in applying for external fellowships, please visit the External Fellowships page.


Please email your nomination letter and supporting documentation to Leigh Anne Robinson, in the Office of the Dean of the College, no later than

March 15, 2019

Information should be submitted electronically as a single PDF email attachment.

Nomination Guidelines:
  • A nomination letter including evidence of outstanding teaching and scholarship (maximum 3 pages)
