Graduate Teaching Fellowship

CHAT provides Graduate Teaching Fellows with research support and offers them the opportunity to teach innovative interdisciplinary humanities courses. This includes a stipend, tuition, benefits, and $1000 in research funding.

Fellows receive office space at the Center and participate in the bi-weekly CHAT Fellows Seminar, where they present part of their manuscript for discussion and critique.

Fellows teach a course of wide humanistic concern related to their research or creative interests. The fellowship is contingent on the pledge of one or more departments or programs to offer the course.

Eligibility for Graduate Teaching Fellowship

This fellowship is available to Temple graduate students in good standing who have completed all course work for the degree and who have support from the department(s) or program(s) offering the course.

Applicants must work together with the department or program chair or curriculum representative in proposing a course for consideration. Past and current Graduate Fellows are ineligible to receive a second fellowship..

  • a statement of proposed research or creative activity (4-6 pages double-spaced) and a description of the current state of that work
