We are excited to invite applications for the 2024 Fellowship Program! This highly competitive award offers students and early-career professionals a wide range of career development, training, and networking opportunities in the scholarly publishing industry, including matching Fellows with an industry expert Mentor and working in small groups to create a poster presentation for SSP’s 46th Annual Meeting, happening May 29-31, 2024.
The full award includes complimentary SSP membership; invitation-only calls with other Fellowship recipients with current and past SSP presidents and board members on developing leadership skills and paths for career growth; free registration to the Annual Meeting; travel stipends to assist with expenses incurred to attend the meeting; free registration to SSP webinars organized throughout the year; and the opportunity to participate in an SSP committee.
The Fellowship Program welcomes students in publishing, library, and information science programs and early-career professionals in their first four years in the scholarly communications industry. Applicants should describe how they are uniquely qualified for the Fellowship, how they will practically apply what they learn, and their thoughts on the evolution of scholarly publishing over the next five years to meet the changing needs of scholars and researchers.
SSP is deeply committed to fostering a community that supports and benefits from the talents of scholarly publishers from myriad backgrounds. We believe that our community must center on diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility, and we strongly encourage people from traditionally marginalized groups to apply as Fellows.
The deadline to apply is November 10, 2023. Read more about Application Requirements, Benefits, and Responsibilities.
The Fellowship Program is made possible by the Generations Fund. Generous donations from members and industry endow the Generations Fund to allow SSP the resources, in perpetuity, to continue this program. Click here to learn more, or make a gift to help us reach our $500,000 goal.
