Letters of interest for the Center for Teaching and Learning’s Writing Fellows program are being accepted until April 22. The program was established to support faculty in their efforts to include more writing in their courses.
A group of up to 12 faculty will be selected as Writing Fellows for the 2013-2014 academic year. The group will meet regularly to discuss the most effective ways to teach and to respond to student writing. Each Writing Fellow will receive a stipend of $1,000 to subsidize projects aimed at constructing courses, resources or initiatives that will support student writing at UGA.
Selected Writing Fellows agree to participate in the regular meetings and submit a project proposal for the use of the stipend.
All permanent UGA faculty are eligible to apply for a writing fellowship. Each candidate should send a letter of interest for the fellowship, endorsed by the candidate’s department or unit head, addressed to C. Edward Watson, director of the Center for Teaching and Learning, Instructional Plaza, UGA.
