Research Fellows are faculty members from Florida Universities that have been selected based on their submissions to the CFL Call for Proposals. They integrate professional knowledge from a diverse field and provide the Center with new perspectives on the leadership framework. Research Fellows are awarded on the basis of their leadership research potential and contribution.

Research Fellows will be expected to serve as mentors for Graduate Fellows and consultants for CFL research staff. Additionally, Research Fellows are invited to Center sponsored events, and are granted access to the Center?s intellectual resources. Research Fellows will be required to provide monthly progress reports and complete their proposed research project during their fellowship period. Upon completion of the project they will present their findings at a Center sponsored lecture and receive a certificate recognizing his or her accomplishment as a Center Fellow. The title of Research Fellow is held for the period of one academic year during the completion of their proposed research project. Research Fellowships are awarded annually in the Spring semester.
