Heidi Ballard, associate professor of education, has been selected as a 2014-15 Chancellor’s Fellow. The Chancellor’s Fellows Program recognizes “the rising stars who shine as teachers and campus citizens, and whose scholarly work already puts them at the top of their fields — garnering attention far and wide.” It is one of the highest and most prestigious honors on this campus.
Ballard’s selection as a Chancellor’s Fellow will ensure that her scholarship receives wider recognition and will enable her to pursue her work in new and creative ways. Ballard will hold the title of Chancellor’s Fellow until July 1, 2019, and will receive a one-time award of $25,000 to support her research and projects.
Associate Professor Michal Kurlaender was selected as a Chancellor’s Fellow in 2013.
The Chancellor’s Fellows Program is supported by funds from the Chancellor’s Club and the annual fund of the University of California, Davis. The goal of the program is to honor the achievements of outstanding faculty members early in their careers.
