graduate students and postdoctoral scholars networking at a Professors for the Future Event

Connect with PFTF

Professors for the Future fellows say that some of the lasting takeaways from this competitive, professional development program are the connections they make and the relationships that grow out of their PFTF experience. That is why we invite all PFTF alumni to stay connected with PFTF.

Below is a list of the ways in which PFTF alumni are invited to stay connected.

Make a Gift

An important element of PFTF's competitive, professional development fellowship is the $3,000 stipend that is awarded to each PFTF fellow. The funds both validate a level of prestige to the fellowship and provided much-needed funds that fellows may use to support any element of their doctoral or postdoctoral experience at UC Davis.

Your gift to support a PFTF fellow not only helps empower a select group of diverse students who will become the professors of the future; but, also because of the focus of their academic service projects that each of the fellows executes, a gift to PFTF helps uplift the entire graduate community at UC Davis.

You can make a gift to support the PFTF fellowship HERE.
