Each CTL Writing Fellow receives $1,000 to subsidize projects aimed at constructing courses or initiatives that will support student writing at UGA.

2017-2018 Call for Writing Fellows Applicants

In a continued effort to make writing an integral part of UGA’s educational experience, the Office of the Vice President for Instruction is pleased to announce the continuation of the CTL’s Writing Fellows program, established to support faculty in their efforts to include more writing in their courses.

A group of up to twelve faculty will be selected as Writing Fellows for the 2017-2018 academic year. The group will meet regularly to discuss the most effective ways to teach and to respond to student writing. Each Writing Fellow will receive $1,000 to subsidize projects aimed at constructing courses, resources, or initiatives that will support student writing at UGA.  These funds will be transferred to the home department of the fellow and may be used following the guidelines and policies of other departmental state funds.

The Writing Fellows will meet approximately every three weeks to discuss research that substantiates the best practices for helping students develop as writers. Selected Writing Fellows agree to participate in the regular meetings and submit a project proposal for the use of the stipend.

All permanent UGA faculty are eligible to apply for a Writing Fellowship. The selection committee is seeking faculty who represent a range of disciplines and instructional modes, from regular to large enrollment classes. Each candidate should send a letter of interest for the fellowship, endorsed by the candidate’s department or unit head, addressed to:
 

Dr. Megan Mittelstadt
Assistant Director for Faculty Development and Recognition
Center for Teaching and Learning
Instructional Plaza
The University of Georgia
