We have had several questions regarding availability of the Provost's Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. Due to the financial issues facing the institution and ongoing uncertainty related to the COVID situation we will not be soliciting applications for the program for AY22. We will reassess in the spring and determine whether we will have a call for applications in the fall of 2021 for AY23.

Thank you for your interest in the program.
