New Deadline for eXtension Fellowship Program Applications

The purpose of the eXtension fellowship program is to provide opportunities for qualified individuals, within or outside of Cooperative Extension, to work on a temporary basis through either sabbatical leave or other contractual arrangements with eXtension on specific projects that contribute to the Initiative as well as to the individual. We had originally accepted applications whenever they came in. However, because of an increase in Fellowship applications, we have decided to establish a deadline so all applications can be given equal consideration.

The program will operate on a calendar year basis (i.e., January – December). The deadline for applications will be October 31 for the next calendar year. Once all proposals are received, they will be reviewed and selections will be made based on proposal merit, contribution to eXtension, and available funding.
