Paying It Forward
The first cohort of Haynesville Fellows '21 exhibits a sense of excitement and confidence about the direction of their careers. They also feel they have more latitude now, especially when it comes to playing a role in the transformations taking place at Colby under the current administration.
Our Primary Finding: "The funds have given them a sense of security about their research and personal finances, but it has also made the challenge of carving out more research time an even more pressing issue in their efforts to maintain the balancing act in their lives."
We are still gathering data about the longer-term impacts. Each year, we will have more information about patterns in how the grant accelerated a professor's progress, and whether it made a difference at an institutional level. For now, interested parties should read our first report or contact us for the latest information.
