Apply to GIFT
To apply to the Graduate Institute for Teaching (GIFT) program, graduate students must:
Identify a Potential Faculty Mentor
PhD students should approach faculty with whom they are interested in working. Students must obtain agreement from a faculty member to co-teach a specific course.
- Teaching fellows may co-teach a course during the fall or spring semesters.
- Teaching fellows can apply to work with faculty outside their own home department.
- Students may apply to be a GIFT teaching fellow for a course they have been assigned a teaching assistantship (TA) for, provided the co-teaching mentor clearly differentiates between the two roles
Complete the application form
Submit the application form. Before starting the application, you will need to identify a faculty mentor and request a letter of support that includes the information in the application. The faculty member will need to agree to work with you as your mentor over the 2023-2024 academic year.
Applications will only be reviewed once a signed copy is received.
