Applicants should have a strong interest and experience in serving a college-age population.

Desired Qualifications

University Description
URI is a quintessential New England campus - rural in feeling yet close to the city of Providence, the state’s capital. Linked to the city, the beaches, and nearly every corner of the state by both rail and public transit, the campus is easily accessible from Boston and New York. The University enrolls about 13,000 undergraduate and 3,000 graduate students, and has a full-time tenure-track teaching faculty of approximately 600.

Region Description
Rhode Island is the smallest state but has more than 400 miles of coastline. This is not all ocean frontage but it is notable that all Rhode Islanders live within a 30-minute drive to the Atlantic Ocean or Narragansett Bay. Downtown Boston is about an hour away by car or bus, and New York City is a three-and-a-half hour drive.

Required Application Materials
Applications should include: A letter of interest which describes how the fellowship relates to your professional goals, a current vitae, transcripts of all graduate work, and three letters of recommendation, representing both your academic department and your internship.

Application Deadline
Review of applications will begin January 25, 2013 and continue until the position is filled.

Starting Date
August 19, 2013
