    You might be eligible to apply for the North Star Collective (NSC) Faculty Fellowship, a semester-long fellowship in Spring 2024. The NSC promotes healing and repair for early career BIPOC faculty in New England by providing a nurturing community of care, mentorship, and professional development.
