AMATYC Project SLOPE Research Fellows Program
February 2019 – December 2020


The AMATYC Project SLOPE Research Fellows Program is an NSF-funded initiative within the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC) to encourage mathematics faculty members at associate degree granting institutions to engage in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). SoTL is scholarly inquiry by faculty into questions about their teaching and their students’ learning that is subjected to review and made public for others to build upon.


AMATYC Project SLOPE Fellows will engage in professional development and be mentored by colleagues who have engaged in classroom research as they progress through all aspects of a SoTL project. Fellows will attend a summer workshop on SoTL at Portland State University in Portland, OR (June 13 - 15, 2019), and two consecutive AMATYC national conferences (November 14 – 17, 2019 in Milwaukee, WI and November 12 – 15, 2020 in Spokane, WA).


Six Research Fellows and two Research Mentors will participate in the AMATYC Project SLOPE Research Associate Program. The application period for the AMATYC Project SLOPE Research Fellows Program is October 1 – November 30, 2018. Applicants will be notified of acceptance in February 2019.


The AMATYC Project SLOPE Research Associate Program is a pilot program built on principles and structures that facilitate and support SoTL in the context of two-year colleges and associate degree granting institutions. The design and implementation of the program will be evaluated throughout the program to examine the potential for sustained and scaled implementation beyond the pilot phase. 


Cost: There is no fee for participation in the AMATYC Project SLOPE Project SLOPE Fellows Program itself. AMATYC Project SLOPE will provide Fellows travel funds for the 2019 summer workshop and 2019 AMATYC Conference and a $1000 stipend paid across three installments across the program.


Institutional Cost Sharing: It is estimated that the total institutional commitment will be $1800 in 2020 for conference registration and travel funds for the 2020 AMATYC Conference. Assurance of institutional support and eligibility are of critical importance in the acceptance process. Applicants should connect with their college administration and leadership, sharing the information in the Institutional Commitment [MB1] page prior to applying to program to ensure their institution’s commitment.
