Teaching Fellowships

The Teaching Fellowship program offers students the opportunity to serve as a teaching fellow to a faculty mentor. Its purpose is to promote effective teaching and learning by exposing students to such pedagogical practices as curricular development, classroom management, classroom discussion and/or content delivery. Semester-long Teaching Fellowships pay $600 and assume four to five hours of work per week. A limited number of Summer Teaching Fellowships are available.

Application and Deadlines

After having consulted with their prospective faculty mentor, students apply for a teaching fellowship HERE.

The faculty mentor and the respective department chairperson will receive prompts to review the proposal. Final determination will be made by the Director of Undergraduate Research. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, with the understanding that an application should be approved and finalized prior to the start of the semester.

Any questions should be directed to the Director of Undergraduate Research, Dr. Erik Ching, erik.ching@furman.edu
