The University Innovation Fellowship at ASU is designed to engage early- and mid-career policy-makers, analysts, researchers, communicators, writers, designers and leaders in big ideas and real program building processes that can transform higher education institutions.
Fellows design, build and launch new initiatives at one of the the largest comprehensive public research universities in the U.S., ranked No. 1 in innovation by U.S. News & World Report
Fellows form an interdisciplinary team that contributes to high-level projects, engages with university leaders and supports institutional innovation
Fellows collaborate with influential changemakers in higher education and the community, including a growing base of University Innovation Fellow alumni
Fellows establish and advance relationships with potential funders to create actionable, successful initiatives that serve as demonstration projects for the New American University model
Fellows enhance their writing skills through the development of research and industry-backed proposals and grant applications
Fellows are supported personally and professionally as they launch careers based on transformative thinking about higher education systems and projects
The fellows work in a very distinct intrapreneurial office culture. They spend time gaining a better understanding of university administration, institutional transformation, the role of higher education institutions and the development of meaningful university-wide programs. In addition, the fellows meet with ASU students, faculty, staff and community members to learn more about needs and opportunities within the university and community. View our UI 101 Handbook for an introduction to our office and culture.
The fellowship is a full-time position (40+ hours per week) with a competitive salary of $55,000-$70,000. Additional university benefits include health insurance, vacation and sick leave, paid holidays and reduced tuition. View additional benefits here.
