Meet Our Faculty Fellows

Whether leading workshops on NC State’s campus, sharing best practices via articles or presenting at conferences, the DELTA Faculty Fellows are building a stellar reputation.

Faculty Fellows grant recipients must be faculty members (non-tenure or tenured/tenure-track) at North Carolina State University who have been employed at the university for at least five years. DELTA Grants for Faculty Fellows are available each cycle. Those applying should expect to stay at NC State for the duration of the grant process.
