Graduate Teaching Fellows Mentoring Program
About the Program
The Graduate Teaching Fellows Program at Radford University provides graduate student instructors with a structured environment in which to build their teaching skills. Our collegial program shares teaching ideas, lesson plans, grading strategies, problems, and successes.
The GTA/F Program supports Radford University’s emphasis on pedagogy. Graduate Teaching Assistants and Fellows are assigned to an experienced English faculty member with whom they work closely in planning and teaching Core classes. This unique learning experience cannot be attained in conventional graduate courses.
Stipends and Tuition Waivers
In-state first-year Graduate Teaching Assistants receive a full tuition waiver for 9 graduate credit hours (the typical course load) each semester and a $10,000 stipend per year.
In-state second-year GTFs receive a full tuition waiver for 9 graduate credit hours (the typical course load) each semester and an $11,000 stipend per year.
The program offers a limited number of full tuition waivers and stipends for out-of-state students.
Mentoring Program Spotlight
The Mentoring Program congratulates Melanie Graham (M.A. 2016), who has officially accepted service as a University English Instructor and TEFL Volunteer with the Peace Corps in the Ukraine.
In addition to teaching University English, Melanie will promote critical thinking and problem-solving skills to students and teachers in the field. She will work closely with her Ukrainian colleagues to provide teacher training and share, develop, and implement new language teaching methods and materials. We’re so happy for Melanie, and we wish her the best of luck!
