Susan B. Anthony Teaching Fellowship

Each year, the SBAI invites current graduate students at the University of Rochester to compete for the Susan B. Anthony Teaching Fellowship, which offers graduate students an opportunity to design and teach their own introductory (100-level, four-credit) course in GSW.

This teaching fellowship will offer an award of $7,000 for an individual graduate student. We especially encourage applications from students who have passed their qualifying exams or will shortly do so.

Application information and full details about the fellowship can be found here.
