Fordham University Senior Teaching Fellowships
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. Normally, the Senior Teaching Fellowship would be the second of the internally administered prestigious awards for advanced doctoral students.
Thus, a Senior Teaching Fellowship would be held before an Alumni Dissertation Fellowship but after a Research Assistantship.
The stipend for a 2009 / 10 GSAS Senior Teaching Fellowship was $23,000. A tuition scholarship will also be provided. Responsibilities of Senior Teaching Fellows include teaching three courses per year at Fordham College under faculty supervision.
Eligibility for Fordham University Senior Teaching Fellowships
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.
