Doctoral Fellowships for tomorrow's leaders

Society of Self Fellows

The Society of Self Fellows serves as the alumni network for the Self Graduate Fellowship. The Society encourages continued participation by Self Graduate Fellows throughout their professional careers. Society members have the opportunity to engage with the Self Graduate Fellowship through the annual symposium, society newsletter, recruitment, networking, and mentoring. Currently, there are 149 associate members in the society. Of the 149 associate members, 137 are lifetime members. Those who have completed the requirements for their Ph.D. degree are lifetime members with voting rights.
