Faculty Innovation Fellowship

Faculty Innovation Fellowship

In collaboration with the Provost and the Associate Provost for Education Innovation and Student Life, the Office of Innovation is recruiting faculty to participate in our Faculty Innovation Fellows program. The purpose of the program is to incentivize innovations in teaching our students that advance MUSC towards its strategic goals. Up to five (5) faculty members from across MUSC’s academic domains will be selected to participate as Fellows. Topics and goals may change annually with each cohort.


  • Each Fellow will receive $10,000 in professional development funds.

  • Funds may be used for any expense permitted by University and state policies, including, but not limited to training expenses and associated travel, site licenses for software, technology and material purchases, honoraria for mentors.
  • Funds will be disbursed after submission and approval of a detailed plan and itemized budget.


Applicants are required to submit

  • Application form, including objectives and outcome metrics
  • Current CV
  • Letter of support from applicant's primary Division Director, Department Chair or Associate Dean for Academics for appropriate faculty. The letter should include approval for release of time to pursue the proposed activities and commitment to sustain the project should the pilot be successful.
