Each fellow receives six units of reassigned time* and up to $5000 in support to advance their projects during the academic year.
- Provost’s Fellow for Research, Innovation, and Special Initiatives.

All fellows will be expected to make a public presentation about their work to the Baruch community at the conclusion of the fellowship year at the Cross-College Faculty Research Symposium
