Application Procedures

Participants will be selected from applicants who have submitted materials that include (Each page must have your name and institution.):

  • a one-page discussion of your concept of leadership, your understanding of your leadership potential, and what you hope to gain from participating in the institute

  • a description of a leadership 'project' that you will undertake on you campus or within your professional community within a time frame that you specify (as little as one year, but no longer than five years)

  • a letter of commitment from a person in a position to support that leadership project

  • reflections on your involvement with Project Kaleidoscope and other national networks, describing the impact of such involvement on your career

  • two letters of reference (one from outside your campus community) about your demonstrated promise as a national leader in STEM education.

Send two complete copies to:

Project Kaleidoscope
ATTN: F21 Leadership Institute
1730 Rhode Island Ave., NW
Suite 803
Washington, DC 20036

In the selection process, we will seek to establish the appropriate balance of participants with respect to discipline, institution size, and diversity for most effective interactions during and beyond the institute.

The leadership institute will serve primarily members of the PKAL F21 network. However, we will look to disciplinary societies and professional associations to identify strong candidates and to support their participation; the advisory committee will assist in connecting to these groups.
