Dear PhD Students,
We are pleased to announce a new funding opportunity for PhD Students. PhD students are eligible to apply for the “Academic Technology Scholars” program, which will provide SGA stipend funding to selected PhD students for the full Summer 2020 term. Students who are selected to receive this honor will receive training and the opportunity to earn a certificate in “Teaching with Academic Technology.” These Academic Technology Scholars will also be members of a digital curriculum team dedicated to supporting faculty as they convert their courses to an online format in preparation for Fall 2020. These efforts are aligned with our focus to ensure a differentiated, high-quality student experience for all of our learners.
Applications due: no later than Friday, May 1, 2020
Selections made: by Wednesday, May 6, 2020
Certification training starts: Monday, May 18, 2020
Applicants whose funding has been impacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic will be given preference. More information about the opportunity and the application process is available at the PhD Network website here. Please direct questions to me.
