Visiting Faculty Program (VFP)

The Visiting Faculty Program (VFP), formerly called Faculty and Student Teams (FaST), is designed to provide an opportunity for faculty members from institutions historically marginalized in STEM to enhance research capabilities and strengthen STEM education and learning practices to develop talent to contribute to the Department of Energy (DOE) research areas. VFP accomplishes this mission in two tracks: (1) VFP Research Collaboration Track and (2) VFP Teaching Initiative Track.
Open to full-time faculty members at an accredited U.S. degree granting, postsecondary institution of higher education historically underrepresented in the U.S. research community. See the main website for full requirements.
