Our Summer 2019 Application is now available

Due February 1, 2019

Submit an application now and we'll get back to you soon with an invitation to design a course. 

To submit an application, please complete the form below. You will need to prepare 3 items: 

  • A brief description of your course. In 150 words or fewer, provide a brief synopsis of the course you would teach. We understand that this might change as your thinking develops, so we'd be most interested in a general sketch of the course. For examples of courses, see our Course Catalog.

  • A statement of teaching philosophy. In a short letter of no more than 2 pages, explain your teaching philosophy and how it aligns with our mission of educational equity and our teaching philosophy. In your teaching philosophy, explain what you see as the impact of your course and your teaching on the students you'll teach next summer.

  • A Curriculum Vitae.


Our commitment to diversity in recruiting & selecting applicants:

We are committed to bringing doctoral candidates of different races, ethnicities, economic backgrounds, physical abilities, genders, sexual orientations, and religious beliefs to teach our students. We are also committed to enlisting the broadest range of universities and academic disciplines to work with us. Part of the argument that we’re making to students is that the most rigorous college classrooms are places where they can thrive and succeed. We make that argument when our teachers hold students to the intellectual expectations of the college classrooms at the research universities where they teach and study. When our teachers share the racial or economic background of our students, that argument is made even stronger. Therefore, we place an additional focus on recruiting doctoral candidates of color and from low-income backgrounds.
