The University Innovation Fellowship at ASU is designed to engage early- and mid-career policy-makers, analysts, technologists, engineers, researchers, communicators, writers, designers and leaders in generating and advancing big ideas that can transform higher education institutions and the communities they serve.
Over 13 months, fellows develop a diverse project portfolio, collaborative philosophy and comprehensive skill set that helps them leverage emerging scientific, technological, policy and design innovations to expand access to educational and economic opportunity.
Fellows design, build and launch new initiatives at one of the largest comprehensive public research universities in the U.S., ranked No. 1 in innovation by U.S. News & World Report for five straight years.
Fellows collaborate with influential changemakers in higher education and the community, including a growing base of University Innovation Fellow alumni.
Fellows form an interdisciplinary team that contributes to high-level projects, collaborates with university leaders, and supports institutional innovation.
Fellows enhance their writing skills through the development of research and industry-backed proposals and grant applications.
Fellows are supported personally and professionally as they launch careers based on transformative thinking about higher education, innovation, and economic opportunity.
The fellows work in a very distinct entrepreneurial office culture. They spend time gaining a better understanding of the role of higher education institutions serving their communities, developing and advancing innovative new ideas at a rapid pace. In addition, the fellows meet with ASU students, faculty, staff and community members to learn more about needs and opportunities within the university and community.
The fellowship is a full-time position (40+ hours per week) with a competitive salary of $55,000-$70,000. Additional university benefits include health insurance, vacation and sick leave, paid holidays and reduced tuition. View additional benefits here.
