Fifteen faculty members from diverse disciplines have been selected as the first cohort of the Chancellor Faculty Fellows program.

“The strong commitment to education, discovery and care demonstrated by these faculty members is having an enormous impact on Vanderbilt and its mission of serving society,” says Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos. “We have chosen to further invest in them at this critical point in their careers to ensure they have ample resources and opportunities to build their own body of work and to serve as outstanding mentors to postdoctoral scholars, graduate students and undergraduates.”

Chancellor Faculty Fellows will be supported by an unrestricted allocation of $40,000 a year for two fiscal years. They will meet as a group during the course of their awards to exchange research interests and build a broader intellectual community that advances trans-institutional scholarship.
