The Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) invites applications for the 2023 Fellowship Program. This highly competitive award offers 12 students and early-career professionals a wide range of career development, training, and networking opportunities in the scholarly publishing industry, including matching Fellows with a mentor and working in small groups to create a poster presentation for SSP’s 45th Annual Meeting, happening May 31–June 2, 2023.
An SSP Fellowship provides training opportunities, complimentary SSP membership, registrations for selected SSP events, and travel reimbursement of up to $1,300 for US applicants and up to $2,000 for those coming from abroad to attend the Annual Meeting. Fellows also have the option to attend the meeting virtually.
Early-career professionals in the first four years of their employment in the scholarly communications industry and students enrolled in publishing, library, and information science programs are eligible to apply. Fellows are paired with an industry expert mentor leading up to the Annual Meeting, contribute to a Fellowship project, report on learning outcomes, and attend quarterly Leadership Academy webinars. Fellows are also asked to discuss how they intend to apply their Fellowship experience in the future.
