Up to nine full-time students in the graduate inclusive childhood education professional program will be selected to be teaching fellows this year, through a highly competitive process. Each fellow receives a six-credit graduate assistantship during the fall and the spring semesters, saving a third of the total tuition cost. Being a fellow is a commitment that begins summer session I 2016 and continues through summer session II 2017. (Discontinuing the fellowship may result in owing a refund for your graduate assistantship). Fellows take some coursework in a hybrid format (partially online) to allow maximum time in the schools.
What fellows do: Spend about two days a week working in a public school in Rochester, Penfield, Rush-Henrietta, or Canandaigua beginning in the summer. There, you’ll support school-based initiatives, children, and their learning. You can integrate your own inquiry interests.
