How to Become a Section NExT Fellow
All non-tenured faculty in their first five years of full-time teaching are eligible to apply! Faculty at 2-year and 4-year colleges are particularly welcome. The Section NExT program covers two academic years with two MAA section meetings each year. If you are already a National NExT Fellow then please send an email to Alex Meadows (contact information below) stating that you would like to be a Section NExT Fellow. Otherwise, please apply during our application period at the beginning of the fall semester.
At each meeting, there are several Section NExT sessions, organized to allow fellows to participate in the regular MAA Section meeting as well as gain valuable insight on the profession from more experienced colleagues from similar institutions. For Section NExT fellows, the meeting begins in the mid-afternoon on Friday, usually with the meeting workshop, and ends with the regular MAA meeting on Saturday afternoon. For each meeting, the cost of the meeting registration, the Friday night banquet, Saturday lunch, and the NExT sessions is covered by the Section and National NExT programs. The cost for the Section NExT fellow's department is at most one hotel night and transportation costs for each of the four meetings, and of course allowing the Section NExT fellow to arrive in time for the Friday afternoon program.
