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 2013-2014, the Humanities Collegiate Division will fund up to five Stuart Tave teaching fellowships in the College. Each department may sponsor up to two advanced graduate students who will compete for these fellowships across the Division. Students must be ABD by January 31, 2013, and must submit an electronic copy of one chapter of their dissertation as part of their application.
Teaching fellows will teach one undergraduate course of their own design in the department sponsoring their project. This course can be taught in any of the three quarters of 2013-2014, depending on their department’s wishes. The first screening of applications will be made by the departments, and the final decision will be made by a divisional selection committee convened by the Humanities Collegiate Division.
Courses are to be designed by the graduate students, and they should reflect their intellectual interests. However, department chairs should also advise their students that the intent of this fellowship is to provide engaging and interesting courses for undergraduates—courses that are suitable for the department’s undergraduate curriculum as well as having a broader appeal. In our experience, course proposals that too closely mirror the dissertation research of applicants are often not suitable for undergraduate courses.
Students must be ABD by January 31, 2013, and must submit an electronic copy of one chapter of their dissertation as part of their application. Email Sarah Tuohey for the application.
