University Administrative Fellowships help you prepare for the tenure-track job market or a career in academic administration. They are also valuable if you are looking for an experience that will position you for careers beyond the academy. Work on a project under the direction of the host department, attend meetings, and learn the ins and outs of your host’s position—including specific responsibilities, organizational dynamics, external networks, and more. The Fellowship is broken into two components: Mentoring and shadowing: Roughly 2 hours per week for the length of a semester A project component: Roughly 4 hours per week for the length of a semester To accept the fellowship, you must receive permission from your adviser(s) and be in good academic standing. International graduate students are encouraged to apply and to be in touch with the Davis International Center during the application process. University Administrative Fellows receive a $2,880 stipend in addition to normal support. The total time commitment is an average of 6 hours per week for the length of a semester. Summer UAFs are available, as are remote fellowships, which enable a broader range of participation in this program.

This bridging across professional "boundaries" also happens to be a key objective of my fellowship...” –Isabelle Chen, GS, FIT “During my time in the program, I was able to meet with professors that I would not have normally interacted with and learn about their research. In addition, I took part in conversations with external companies that were interested in licensing Princeton IP. The UAF experience broadened the scope of career paths that I thought were possible with a PhD and provided me with valuable experience in getting to know all of the moving parts by which outside organizations can utilize the cutting-edge research generated within Princeton’s vibrant research community.” –Jake Herb *17, CHE, Principal Scientist, Materials and Energy Technology Group, Physical Sciences, Inc.
