***WE NEED YOUR HELP***
Dear Faculty Member,
The NASPA Undergraduate Fellows Program (NUFP) is currently seeking candidates for the 2013-2014 NUFP Fellowship Cohort. NUFP is a semi-structured mentoring program for undergraduate students interested in learning more about the fields of student affairs and higher education. This highly selective program strives to increase the number of underrepresented professionals (ethnic-minority background, disabilities, and/or identifying as LGBTQ) in the field of Student Affairs.
Applicants must meet the following criteria to apply:
- 2.5 GPA or better
- 2 reference letters
- Official transcript
- A completed NUFP application
If selected, the applicant is assigned a mentor for one year with eligibility for renewal. Mentoring for the students include weekly or bi-weekly coaching, professional development training, and graduate preparation. Priority consideration is given to Juniors and Seniors.
If you know of students you believe will benefit from this program initiative, please send their name, email address, and classification to Leah Campbell, Graduate Assistant in SEES at firstname.lastname@example.org . Please submit all nominations by Friday, February 22, 2013.
Benefits of Program
Selected students are known as Fellows. They are given the opportunity to attend the national conference hosted by NASPA, apply for national scholarships, pursue paid internships, and seek selection in the NASPA Summer Leadership Institute.
Old Dominion University and NASPA welcome your assistance and participation!
