Please continue to check this page.

The Faculty Fellows Program is designed to bring dynamic early-career educators to FRA for one-year fellowships. Fellows are typically only one to two years removed from their undergraduate work. All fellows are paired with a master teacher with whom they collaborate throughout the year, adding another instructor to the classroom and another mentor for our students.+

While at FRA, faculty fellows engage in regular and ongoing professional development led by local university professors. Through these seminars and internal professional development, all fellows build professional portfolios during their time on our campus.

In addition to teaching duties in their mentors’ classroom, fellows are actively involved in our co-curricular programs each season. Many fellows have extensive experience in collegiate athletics, arts, and service life, and they bring expertise, energy, and enthusiasm to FRA playing fields, gyms, theaters, and service programs.

Applications for the Fellows Program are reviewed for all departments in each division.

Compensation & Benefits include:

  • Salary Stipend
  • Housing & Utilities
  • Reduced Lunch Cost
  • Opportunity to enroll in health, dental, life, vision, and long-term disability plan
  • Opportunity to enroll in health savings account to offset health-related costs
