Postgraduate Teaching Fellowship
Every year, the School of Critical Studies offers two Postgraduate Teaching Fellowships to recent graduates of the MFA Creative Writing Program and MA Aesthetics and Politics Program. Fellows design and teach a 15-week course of study, and a two-week workshop as part of the Wintersession term. The Postgraduate Teaching Fellow provides office hours as well as assessment and feedback for undergraduate students throughout the course. Undergraduate curriculum categories include Cultural Studies, Humanities, Computing and Research Skills, Science and Math, Creative Writing, and Social Science. Each Fellow is assigned a faculty mentor with whom they can consult throughout their tenure. Postgraduate Teaching Fellows receive an $8000 stipend in addition to professional development and teaching experience.
The School of Critical Studies and the School of Art are pleased to support recent graduates of the MA Aesthetics and Politics Program, MFA Creative Writing Program, and the MFA Programs in Art, Art and Technology, Graphic Design and Photo & Media through the CalArts REEF Residencies. Two students from the School of Critical Studies and two students from The School of Art will receive a cost-free space in a large shared open studio, with additional access to an exhibition/public space from Oct. 1, 2019 – Sept. 15, 2020. Recipients will also receive a grant of $5,000 to support their work.
An award of $1,000 is made annually to a Creative Writing student to attend the Juniper Institute in the summer after graduation. The fellowship recipient is chosen by the Juniper Institute from a list of nominees submitted by the writing faculty.
