Graduate Teaching Fellowships

A number of Graduate Teaching Fellowships (GTFs) are available each year for new graduate students in the department. Graduate Teaching Fellows receive a minimum annual stipend (9 months) of approximately $10,000, depending on the candidate’s academic status. Principal tuition charges are waived. Health insurance is also provided with the GTF.

A Graduate Teaching fellow is responsible for teaching one beginning language section four or five hours per week under the direction of a faculty supervisor.

Students who hold a Graduate Teaching Fellow (GTF) appointment are required to register and complete a minimum of 9 graduate credits during each quarter of their appointments, all of which must apply toward their degree programs.

Students should apply for a GTF at the same time they apply to our graduate program. January 6, 2013 is the date for priority consideration for admission to our program as well as for a GTF position.

GTF support to complete the M.A. program is two years. GTF support to complete the Ph.D. is typically three years after the M.A. GTF support is contingent to students doing satisfactory progress towards their degrees.
