In the fall of 2015, the Graduate Center was awarded a $3.15 million grant from the Andrew W Mellon Foundation to support a new four-year initiative, The CUNY Humanities Teaching and Learning Alliance (HTLA). HTLA will place fellows from the Graduate Center in LaGuardia Community College classrooms, partnering with master faculty there.
And the really good news? Latin American literature and Spanish Composition courses do form a large part of the need to be filled by HTLA fellows!
More information about HTLA can be found here.
Two-year fellowships of $25,000 per year are available to nine Graduate Center students. Other eligibility notes:
- Students must be entering years 2-5 of their graduate study during the 2016-2017 school year.
- The fellowships are available to students in the social sciences and the humanities.
- Students with DACA status are eligible to apply.
Read more fellowship requirements and apply! The deadline for applications is February 29, 2016.
Any questions about the fellowships should be directed to the Teaching and Learning Center Forum on the Commons. You must be a member of the TLC Commons group to post a topic on the Forum.
