Huncke Endowment Teaching Fellowship

The Freda Huncke Endowment Graduate Teaching Fellowships were established to enable excellent new students to develop teaching expertise and get a solid start on academics when beginning one of our graduate programs in the English Department. Preference is given to new students whose teaching experience is judged excellent by supervisors or faculty recommenders or whose potential for excellence in teaching is evident in their application files. Recipients are chosen by the Graduate Admissions Committee of the ISU English Department in cooperation with the graduate faculty in our graduate programs.

These fellowships provide selected students with an award equivalent to teaching one course reducing their teaching load from 4 courses to 3 courses during their first year in the program. Recipients receive the same benefits as other graduate assistants, including tuition scholarships and the same stipend level as other teaching assistants teaching 4 courses per year. The fellowship, teaching, and graduate coursework at Iowa State University should constitute the student’s full-time occupation during the fellowship semester.
