SUNY PRODiG Faculty Fellowship

SUNY Cortland is proud to participate in the SUNY PRODiG Fellowship Consortium, which aims to increase the representation of historically underrepresented faculty on our campus.

The program is a collaborative effort of the 13 comprehensive colleges in New York state’s public university system.

Eligible candidates for this two-year program include:

  • Late-stage ABDs or post-docs who are underrepresented minority faculty in general
  • Women faculty of all races in STEM fields


The PRODiG Fellowship aims to introduce early-career diverse faculty to opportunities at a medium-size campus, and the program seeks to provide outstanding mentorship and support to increase future success and faculty retention.

The program will offer support toward degree completion, teaching experience in the individual’s field of expertise, and faculty development.

PRODiG Fellows will receive:

  • A two-year non-renewable contract
  • Reduced teaching load
  • Travel allowances
  • Summer research stipends
  • Moving expenses

Annual compensation is $55,000 regardless of discipline for the fellowship. Fellows will be paired with a senior faculty member to help facilitate their transition to campus. Fellows also will be a part of a larger cohort from across the SUNY system who will meet, both in person and online, throughout the two-year fellowship. The fellowship is open to a wide range of academic disciplines.

Applying to PRODiG

Prospective applicants must complete an online application, which will be shared on this page when it is available for the 2022-23 academic year.
