The opportunity comes with a $1500 stipend per semester (no tuition waiver, does not replace existing funding). Qualified applicants will have at least 2 semesters of TA experience and demonstrate additional commitment to their teaching development.  The deadline to apply for the 2023-2024 cohort has been extended to Friday, May 12.
