The UMass Amherst iCons program prepares our best undergraduates to be problem solvers, leaders and innovators in science and technology. iCons faculty recruit top tier students across a diverse range of science and engineering disciplines to identify global problems and find cutting edge solutions. The iCons program positions students for high achievement in graduate school and in their careers.
“My driving force is the desire to lead, inspire, and learn from the teams working on society’s largest problems to find the right solutions that have a positive impact on the world.”
The UMass iCons Program invites nominations of UMass faculty for its iCons Teaching Fellowship.
The iCons Teaching Fellows are selected to teach one iCons course for 2-3 years and receive professional development funding for the duration of the fellowship. Faculty may be nominated for the iCons Teaching Fellowship by current iCons students, by their departmental head or chair, by colleagues, or by self-nomination. Nominated instructors will be notified with additional information about the fellowship.
