The Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) is inviting applications for the 2020 Annual Fellowship Program. Interested candidates can begin the application process on SSP's website.
Early-career professionals in the first four years of their employment in the scholarly communications industry and students enrolled in publishing or library, and information science programs are eligible to apply. Applicants should include their résumés along with responses to three questions posted on the Fellowship program site.
This experience offers a wide range of career development, training, and networking opportunities for students and early-career professionals in the scholarly publishing industry. SSP will award up to 12 Fellowships at the Annual Meeting in Boston, MA, May 27–May 29, 2020.
The Fellowship provides a year-long program with training opportunities, complimentary SSP membership, registrations for selected SSP events, and travel reimbursement of up to $1,300 for US applicants and up to $2,000 for those coming from overseas to attend the Annual Meeting.
The program pairs Fellows with an industry expert mentor, who meets via quarterly webinars, in addition to communicating via email and telephone throughout the year.
Fellowship recipients are expected to report on sessions they observe at SSP – describing experiences and learning outcomes, join and actively participate in an SSP committee, contribute to a Fellowship project and surveys, and work with committees to promote and highlight the Fellowship program. Because of these expectations, applicants will be asked to discuss how they intend to apply the Fellowship to their life after the conference.
