Faculty First Look Scholars

FFL is a year-long program that provides participants on-site and virtual instructional and social engagement with Steinhardt faculty, postdoctoral researchers, doctoral students, deans, and administrators, to help participants better understand and prepare to launch their faculty careers. Eligible participants include doctoral/terminal degree candidates working in fields represented among Steinhardt’s faculty, departments and research centers. We primarily consider applicants from African American, Hispanic/Latinx, American Indian, or Alaskan Native descent, and others who are underrepresented and underserved in the Academy and/or at Steinhardt. Eligible candidates must also commit to being able to travel to NYC once in the Fall semester, and once in the Spring semester.
