Future Faculty Fellowships have a twofold purpose.  They are intended to attract outstanding students to Temple University and to diversify the American professoriate.  While already a national leader in the training of graduate students from traditionally underrepresented groups, including ethnic minorities and women, Temple University is committed to doing all it can to diversify its graduate population and the professoriate.  Candidates are newly admitted graduate students from underrepresented groups in the applicant's discipline who show exceptional leadership and/or have overcome significant obstacles in pursuing an academic career.


Established in 1987, the FFF Program provides funding and maintains a support and information network for Future Faculty Fellows.  Awards are currently made as follows:
