Distinctive training opportunity in teaching

December 5, 2013

To all doctoral students who have advanced to candidacy:

Brown University and Wheaton College are expanding the Brown-Wheaton Faculty Fellows program, providing more opportunities for distinctive training in teaching and making more doctoral students eligible to apply, as detailed below.

This collaborative program between Brown University and nearby Wheaton College offers advanced graduate students the opportunity to experience faculty life firsthand at a liberal arts college. Faculty Fellows teach a one-semester course at Wheaton and participate in the intellectual life of the college. At Brown, the program is administered by the Graduate School and the Sheridan Center.

We invite you to learn more about this training opportunity at a December 10 information session at 3:30 pm at the Sheridan Center. Wheaton College Associate Provost Gail Sahar and a current Brown/Wheaton Faculty Fellow will answer students' questions. Please register to attend.

Beginning with the application cycle for 2014-2015 Brown/Wheaton Faculty Fellows, there will be up to four faculty fellowships, instead of two. Doctoral students from the humanities and the physical, social, and life sciences are encouraged to apply. In addition, we are now accepting applications from students who are currently in their third, fourth, or fifth year of doctoral study. In recent years, third year (i.e., rising fourth year) students were not eligible. See additional criteria on the Graduate School website. Applications are due February 15, 2014.

Best wishes,

Peter M. Weber
Dean of the Graduate School
