The eFellows program will provide postdoctoral researchers with a salary of $75,000 per year, for two years. Upon selection, ASEE will issue subawards to host institutions, to cover salary, benefits and up to $3,000 for travel expenses per fellow.
Fringe benefits for the fellow are requested at the host institution’s applicable rate for postdoctoral researchers, capped at the rate of 26%.
Indirect Costs/Facilities and Administrative costs are charged as a percentage of the modified total direct costs of the host institution, capped at a rate of 35%.
ASEE has developed an experiential learning curriculum exclusively for the eFellows that is designed to prepare participants for a future research career.
The curriculum is designed for a cohort model. The cohort model serves to provide the fellows with a learning community, peer mentoring, and a nurturing environment with “supportive colleagues.” Each cohort member will bring a shared pre-cohort experience comprised of the development of their application in collaboration with an aspirational postdoc faculty advisor.
Programming for fellows – as provided by ASEE with funding from NSF – includes: three immersive meeting experiences with specific learning outcome goals, a 10-part professional development webinar series with special guest speakers from engineering industry and academia, and a research-informed, culturally responsive mentoring program.
