At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

Stuart Tave Teaching Fellowships in the Humanities

The Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality is calling for applications by advanced graduate students (ABD by January 31, 2012) to teach one undergraduate course "of their own design". This course can be taught in any of the three quarters of the 2012-13 academic year. Applications are welcomed for the Stuart Tave Undergraduate Teaching Fellowships from all interested Ph.D. students in the Humanities Division. (Students in all divisions will be encouraged to apply to the general call to teach a free-standing course in Gender and Sexuality Studies, deadline 4/1/12 – more information forthcoming.)

Applicants will be considered to compete for the Humanities Collegiate Division Stuart Tave Undergraduate Teaching Fellowships in the College next year. CSGS will recommend up to two applicants who will compete for these fellowships across the Division. Although the first screening will be made by the departments for the Tave Fellowships, the final decision will be made by a divisional selection committee who will interview finalists.

Please note: You may apply for a Tave Fellowship both through your department and through CSGS, but you must proposed a different course for each.

Fellows will receive $5,000 for the individual undergraduate course they will teach in the College. This fellowship is for one quarter only. Recipients of these fellowships may not defer the fellowships to a later year.

Applications should consist of the following:
  1. The application form (Word file and pdf version attached) including full contact information
  2. The student's current CV
  3. A course title, a course description, a reading list or the applicant's syllabus
  4. A chapter of the student's dissertation.
  5. One letter of recommendation from a member of the faculty

Deadline: Thursday, January 12, by 12:00 pm (noon)

Please email Parts 1.-4. of the application materials in PDF format to me, Sarah Tuohey, at Please use your email account.  Letters of recommendation should also be emailed to me at the same email address.

Notification: The Humanities Collegiate Division will notify the winners of the Stuart Tave Undergraduate Teaching Fellowships.
