The class of 2021-2022 Professors for the Future Fellows

Mission

Professors for the Future is a competitive, leadership and professional development fellowship that fulfills and uplifts Graduate Studies’ mission to cultivate the best learning experiences for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars at UC Davis.

Our Current Fellows

Each year GradPathways Institute for Professional Development selects a cohort of about 15 doctoral students and postdoctoral scholars to become the next class of PFTF fellows. Our fellows are selected through a competitive process based on a student's demonstrated commitment to professionalism, integrity and academic service.
