The purpose of the Thomas Moorman Fellowship Program is to provide intensive professional development experience, mentoring, and support to future leaders in the Association and the field of Student Affairs. The Program is funded by the TACUSPA Foundation. Each year the Foundation Committee recommends the number of fellows that can be supported based on the cost of conference registration and lodging and revenue generated from the prior year’s donations. The Program pairs selected Fellows with a TACUSPA volunteer leader to complete a project selected by the Board of Directors. Throughout the fellows’ term, they will be guided and mentored by an experienced Association volunteer leader under the supervision of a Board Member.
Projects have been developed by the Board of Directors. The Program will be promoted and applications will be available at the Fall Conference. Fellows will be selected in January and will then begin working on their assigned project with their mentor(s). The project must be completed by October 1 in order to be eligible for complimentary conference registration and lodging reimbursement. Fellows will present their completed project to the Board during a regular meeting and they will be recognized at the Fall 2022 Conference.
The application process includes the submission of the Fellows application, professional reference/support from a faculty member or immediate supervisor.
