Fellowship Purpose and Description
The ARIS fellowship program supports professionals, researchers, faculty, educators, graduate students and others from universities, colleges, and other organizations working to advance practice and improve outcomes of research impacts. The goal of the program is to increase the quality and availability of scholarship and resources about research impacts through two types of projects. First, we support projects that synthesize existing scholarly work to package evidence into easily applied and digestible tools that can be used by the research community to improve research impacts design and practice. Second, we support small-scale innovative scholarship that explores new horizons and advances knowledge about research impacts. Both types of projects require recipients to create products* such as guidance documents, white papers, scholarly articles, decision support tools, multimedia supports, instructive videos, or other creative or scholarly outputs. Fellows are provided three types of support over the course of approximately one year:
- participation in a community of fellows working to advance research impacts;
- peer-review and editing of products under development along with publishing/production and dissemination support; and
- a small stipend to individuals or for organizations to offset the cost of fellowship work and/or fellowship related travel.
ARIS will recognize the work of fellows on the Center website, at the annual National Alliance for Broader Impacts (NABI) Summits, and with a letter that outlines your contribution sent to your organizational leadership.
