getstartedGraduate students wishing to join the FPP should contact their primary faculty liaison, who sends the Graduate School a list of participants early in September. Only students who are officially enrolled in the program can qualify for an FPP stipend.

Eligibility requirements for the FPP vary widely by department/college. In some programs, all graduate students can participate, or may even be automatically enrolled. Other programs may require prior TA experience, limit the number of participants, or impose other restrictions.

Female students in the STEM disciplines may have the option of enrolling in FPP through their home departments or through the WiSE program. Students may wish to investigate such issues as the programs’ respective expectations of participants, portfolio and other certification requirements, and FPP stipend allocations prior to enrolling in the FPP.

Individuals whose home department or college does not participate in the FPP should contact Glenn Wright in the Graduate School (315.443.3458 or glwright@syr.edu). It may be possible to arrange your participation through another academic unit or as a “member at large.”

Receipt of announcements via the FPP listserv is an excellent indication that you are enrolled in the program. To verify your enrollment status, please contact Dina Ioannidis in the Graduate School (315.443.6130 or kioannid@syr.edu).
