GSO Team Application

 

Teaching Fellowship Application Information

Summer III 2014

2014 GSO Teaching Fellowship application

The Division of Graduate Studies will accept applications for 2014 Graduate Student Orientation team members starting on March 1.  This employment opportunity is known formally and listed on payroll contracts as a (GSO) Teaching Fellowship; informally, the specific job title is GSO Team Leader. 

The GSO program seeks to employ high-achieving, energetic, and engaging graduate students from a wide range of academic disciplines and personal backgrounds to assist with the planning and implementation of GSO.  Additionally, GSO leaders may have the opportunity to assist with and facilitate graduate professional and academic development (GPAD) workshops during the academic year. 

GSO leaders are expected to serve as positive role models for graduate students, and are asked to be available to their fellow graduate students beyond GSO in a mentoring relationship if called upon.  Though not required, preference is given to applicants with teaching experience.

Eligibility:  Fall 2014 GSO leaders must be enrolled in graduate classes or credit hours for Summer or Fall 2014.  Students who are on an assistantship for Summer II or III are not eligible to participate.  GSO planning meetings will occur throughout Summer III on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12-4pm, beginning July 14, and Fall GSO will be held on August 19 and 20, 2014.  In-person attendance at the meetings is mandatory.  GSO team members will be under contract for Summer III and will receive a stipend of $1,600 for their work.

Completed applications are due on Tuesday, April 1, 2014 and should be submitted via email to gso@kent.edu.  Letters of recommendation may be submitted with together with the completed application or emailed separately.  Late, incomplete or handwritten applications will not be accepted.
