Academic Research Fellows Program 

The AACP Academic Research Fellows Program (ARFP) is a year-long program designed to expand the leadership capabilities of established faculty research scientists and administrators to cultivate collaborative team research and graduate education across institutions. Specifically, participants will gain experience in research-focused leadership development; team building; and the development of innovative research strategies to secure funding from federal and other public and private sources. Participants will also gain insight into the dynamics, management, institutional structures and policies that affect research teams; and have the opportunity to network with successful research leaders and advocacy groups. In addition to sessions in residence, Fellows will design and implement projects to enhance the research programs of their home institutions.
