Fellows of the Graduate School

The Fellows of The Graduate School is an organization that recognizes distinguished researchers and scholars from throughout the University of Cincinnati. In addition to their outstanding individual accomplishments, Fellows are generally among the most experienced and accomplished graduate-student mentors at the University.  

New Fellows are elected annually by the current Fellows and are then appointed for life by the Board of Trustees. Criteria for election include evidence of outstanding scholarly and/or artistic attainment. The Fellows therefore constitute a significant resource of talent, experience and intellect at the university. 

While election is intended partly to honor distinguished faculty, Fellows meet regularly to discuss matters arising at the university, and the Fellows have functioned in important advisory roles in graduate education and research, including planning and development. They are also called upon regularly to provide feedback on new initiatives and to review research proposals at all levels of the university.

Call for Applications for Distinguished Speaker Support

The UC Fellows of the Graduate School Distinguished Seminar Committee is now accepting applications for Fellows support provided to UC departments or units to bring a distinguished speaker to campus during the 2015-2016 academic year.

The Fellows will provide up to $1,000 in financial support for a successful application. Distinguished speakers are expected to be those who can attract a broad audience from within the university community, yet whose costs may exceed those of any single department or unit. Multi-disciplinary speakers jointly sponsored by multiple departments and/or units are also eligible for Fellows support. The proposed speaker visit/itinerary need not be secured prior to submission for financial support, but an agreement to present a public lecture at UC is a requirement for UC Fellows support.

A successful application will demonstrate a clear need for Fellows financial support, the ability of the speaker to address a topic of broad interest to the UC community, and the plans of the host unit(s) to broadly disseminate lecture information to students, staff, faculty and other appropriate audience targets.

Financial support may be used to provide a speaker honorarium, post-lecture reception or cover unusual travel expenses.

The distinguished speaker host must submit the completed application form electronically to:

Dr. Patrick A Limbach
Chair, Distinguished Seminar Committee
Email: Pat.Limbach@uc.edu

DEADLINE for receipt of applications: Friday, September 18, 2015.

The members of the Distinguished Seminar Committee will review applications and successful applicants will be notified no later than September 30, 2015.

Any questions should be directed to Dr. Limbach.
