Request a new Fellow position

If you are interested in applying to the Office of the Dean for Graduate Education for funding for a Graduate Community Fellow, please follow these instructions.

  • Review the ODGE’s website material on the strategic theme of community building as well as the details of the ODGE’s Graduate Community Fellows program and application process.
  • Develop a proposal that makes the case for how a Fellow might contribute to graduate community by working in your area. Include a position description using the online position descriptions as a model. This includes boilerplate material (general description and responsibilities) and a list of specific, concrete duties for which the Fellow will be responsible.
  • Submit this material to Idalia Cuevas, Financial and Graduate Community Fellows Associate, in Building 3-138.

If your proposal is accepted, please note that you will be responsible for an appropriate level of supervision of the Fellow assigned to your program. This includes regular meetings with the Fellow, mentoring and advising, as well as annual reports (from student and supervisor) on progress. You may also anticipate some meetings with the Dean and other supervisors throughout the year.

If your proposal and position description are accepted, you may publicize the position and solicit applications. Students must complete the application form and submit it to the ODGE. Applications will then be forwarded to you on a timely basis for selection.
