Senior Teaching Fellowships
Deadline: January 11, 2013 (students submit to department)
Senior Teaching Fellowships provide support for those students who have already completed a Teaching Fellowship in the department. The application for a Senior Teaching Fellowship must include evidence of teaching effectiveness in accordance with the current teaching evaluation instrument approved by the Arts and Sciences Council (SEEQ). In the final selection of Senior Teaching Fellows, the Dean considers the undergraduate teaching needs of academic departments.
The stipend for a 2012/2013 GSAS Senior Teaching Fellowship was $27,000. A tuition scholarship will also be provided. Responsibilities of Senior Teaching Fellows include teaching three courses per year at Fordham College under faculty supervision.
GSAS doctoral students in good standing with satisfactory academic progress according to the guidelines established by GSAS are eligible for this award. A student may apply for only one of the three academic-year financial aid awards for advanced students (Research Assistantship, Senior Teaching Fellowship, or Alumni Dissertation Fellowship). A student may apply for a Summer Fellowship along with any of these three academic year awards.
All applications must include the following:
1. Statement of Teaching Philosophy(Recommended: 2-3 pages)
2. SEEQ scores for each course taught
3. Curriculum Vitae
4. Teaching Mentor’s Recommendation Report (via e-mail). This report should incorporate information obtained through observation of the applicant’s teaching.
Students should complete item 1-4 in electronic form to the student’s Department or Program by January 11, 2013. The student should also arrange for the mentor to submit a letter of recommendation electronically directly to the Department or Program by the same date.
Department: Each department may nominate up to 3 students for the Senior Teaching Fellowship. To nominate students, the Department Chair or Program Director should prepare letter ranking the nominees and describing why they deserve to earn this award. Nominations are limited to 100 words per nominee or 350 words total. If no ranking is indicated, the student whose name appears first will be considered to be rated as the top candidate.
The department should submit items for each applicant (regardless of nomination status) in electronic form, along with department ranking and nomination letter by January 25, 2013 to Nicol Gotsis, GSAS Director Student Development, firstname.lastname@example.org.
