PIF: UIC Pipeline to an Inclusive Faculty Program

Acknowledging the lack of diversity in college and university faculties around around the country, we seek to build a program at UIC to recruit and support outstanding underrepresentated PhD students, who are interested in pursuing careers as faculty members. 

Our intent is to support these students with competitive funding packages, skills and professional development opportunities, and mentoring in order to ensure their success in graduate school and in their future careers.

Applicants who are nominated by their academic program for either the University or Access Fellowshiprecruitment fellowships are automatically considered for the PIF. For more information, please visit this page.
