Graduate Teaching Assistantships
The Department of English Language and Literature offers graduate teaching assistantships to M.A., M.F.A., or Ph.D. students whose application materials and prior experience demonstrate their ability to create and teach first- and second-year composition courses.
The MFA in Creative Writing and Media Arts offers two to three Durwood Scholarships per year, which allow students to pursue their studies without teaching responsibilities. Durwood scholars receive $25,000 over the three-year MFA program and receive tuition remission for 9 credit hours per semester, pending budgetary approval. All admitted students will be considered for the Durwood Scholarships automatically.
Ilus Davis Doctoral Teaching Fellowships
The Department of English Language and Literature offers the Ilus Davis Doctoral Teaching Fellowship for I.Ph.D. students who do not hold graduate teaching assistantships. The department awards fellowships annually on a competitive basis and gives preference to applicants who have not previously held the fellowship and who do not receive other university funding.
