Faculty fellowships are highly competitive awards that CU-Boulder grants to its faculty.

The faculty fellowship program no longer exists. For information on current funding opportunities in the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Innovation.


Faculty fellowships provide a reassignment of University responsibilities so that the faculty member may pursue full-time research or creative work. Fellowship applications consist of a clear research plan to be conducted over a specified time period, with defined objectives upon which recipients report at the end of the grant period. The Council on Research and Creative Work (CRCW) judges the applications competitively on the basis of the quality of the proposal, the record of the faculty member, and the expected contribution to the field and to society in general.

Please visit the website for the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research for further CRCW and fellowship information.

Faculty fellowship and sabbatical eligibility requirements are the same, and accepting one precludes the other.
