The Faster Forward Fellowship

Faster Forward Fellowship (FFf) Overview

The submission deadline has now passed. AWARDS for 2017 will be announced soon.

The Faster Forward Fund is now sponsoring the Faster Forward fellowship (FFfellowship): an opportunity for which students of the Claremont Graduate University Division of Behavioral and Organizational Sciences are eligible. Entrants must meet two eligibility requirements:

1) students must be currently enrolled at Claremont Graduate University;

2) students must have taken or be taking at least one evaluation course at CGU. Students may request an exemption to this requirement. Exemptions are made on a case-by-case basis for students who can show that they have equivalent background knowledge or experience in evaluation.

The FFfellowship award for 2016 will be $5,000 and it will be offered, on present plans, every year from now on and will be awarded to the students (or students, if two or more tie­­, but no multiple author submissions) who submits the best essay of between 2-5,000 words (1.5 or double-spaced, 12 pt. type) on various original and innovative topics (the 2015 essay winners and papers can be found here).

Details regarding the 2016 FFfellowship essay requirements are noted here and are sent to all CGU students annually.

Submissions will be due on March 1, midnight PST, of each year and must be sent to FasterForwardFund@gmail.com.

The winner(s) will be announced soon.
