The Dean’s Teaching Fellowships (DTF) are awarded to students who demonstrate excellence in teaching and who will complete their doctoral degree within the fellowship year (Spring 2024). Each Dean’s Teaching Fellow teaches one course (with exceptions for those completing the DTF program requirements) and receives a stipend for 9 months (September – May), as well as a 100% subsidy for the Emory University Student Health Insurance Plan (EUSHIP). The first stipend payment will be made at the end of September. This year, up to 12 fellowships are being offered, with some directed specifically towards areas/partners listed below. Fellows are expected to complete their degrees during the course of the fellowship year.


To be considered for the fellowship, applicants must:

  • Be full-time students in a doctoral program, in good standing both in the Laney Graduate School and in their program
  • Be in candidacy at the time of application
  • Be in their 5th, 6th, or 7th year of graduate study at the time of application; while students in their 7th year are eligible to apply, preference will be given to students in their 5th or 6th year who show that they are likely to complete their dissertations during the fellowship year
  • Not have held an Emory completion fellowship previously When applicable, the DTF replaces other graduate school stipend and scholarship funding a student may have been scheduled to receive for the fellowship year, and the eligibility for that other funding cannot be reserved to be used in a subsequent year. Fellows are expected to devote full time to their teaching and research and hence may not undertake other teaching opportunities at Emory or elsewhere. Fellows are eligible for Professional Development Support funds subject to the usual criteria. Fellows who receive offers for other awards should contact the Laney Graduate School to determine whether the two awards may be held concurrently.

How to Apply

To apply for a DTF position, students should submit a full application containing the following items:

  • A curriculum vitae;
  • A copy of your Emory transcript (a copy of an unofficial transcript issued to the student is acceptable);
  • A teaching statement (no longer than 2 pages, single spaced
