CURes provides opportunities for faculty, staff and members of the community to make significant contributions to our mission by becoming Fellows. The appointment provides support for research, travel, policy analysis and community program and curriculum development. Fellowships vary in duration from a few months to a year, are renewable and are negotiated with CURes Executive Director, Dr. Eric Strauss. Faculty have used CURes Fellowships to help launch new research projects, support sabbaticals, design courses and spur policy development. Fellows from the Greater Los Angeles Area have helped support our workshops, cultural events and symposia.
