    Goals

    The goal of the Fifth Third Bank / Charlotte R. Schmidlapp Women Scholars Program is to identify and support women faculty members who show promise and leadership skills, and to help them through the promotion and tenure processes. The program is designed to help these scholars transition into the tenure track and obtain tenure, if appropriate.

    Eligibility

    The program is designed for women in junior faculty positions who have been at the assistant professor level for approximately three to five years, or who are at the associate professor level in the non-tenure track. Women faculty in the departments of pediatrics, surgery, anesthesia, pathology and radiology (with a secondary appointment in pediatrics) are eligible for the program.

    Award Amount

    Although the financial award for each scholar varies depending on need, most scholars receive approximately $50,000 a year.
