The Provost’s Fellows for the Libraries project:
- Provides current CU Boulder graduate students with expanded knowledge about career opportunities for students at the MA and PhD level;
- Affords Fellows the opportunity to build personal and professional skills through experiences in the Graduate Teacher Program by attending workshops and pursuing the Professional Development Certificate for Preparing Future Faculty;
- Affords Fellows the opportunity to understand how university libraries function, how academic librarians work, and build initial skills as a librarian in training;
- Gives Fellows the opportunity to work in the University Libraries with academic librarians and to consider applying their disciplinary knowledge and interests to a future career in academic librarianship; and
- Offers Fellows the opportunity to integrate and synthesize a record and description of their professional abilities and interests, making Fellows stronger candidates for application to Master’s in Library Science or Master’s in Information Science Programs.
Fellows are awarded $3000 for 150 hours of participation in the program that pairs them with a Library Faculty Mentor. Fellows receive the stipend upon completion of the 150 hours. Funding for this program is generously provided by the Graduate Teacher Program, Friends of the Libraries, and the Provost and the Dean of the Graduate School.
