Graduate Teaching Fellowships in the Critical Writing Program

Applications for Graduate Teaching Fellowships in the Critical Writing Program are due January 15, 2015. All SAS doctoral candidates who will be in their fifth or sixth year in 2015-16 are eligible and encouraged to apply, including those from the social and natural sciences. Graduate Teaching Fellows teach one writing seminar in their discipline each semester, and are provided with extensive training and mentoring in analyzing and teaching writing in their fields. Graduate students typically find the Teaching Fellowship valuable not only for the teaching experience and specialized credential, but also for how it advances their own understanding of and approach to writing their dissertations and articles. The writing seminar also provides freshmen with an introduction to writing in the Graduate Fellow’s discipline.   To see the disciplines and topics offered this spring, visit online course descriptions.   For more information and a link to the application, visit Teaching Opportunities for Graduate Students page.
