GAANN Fellows Program

grad student in lab
GAANN is a Department of Education funded graduate training program, aimed at better preparing PhD’s for future careers in research and teaching – leading to a more diverse discipline. Our specific program focuses on inclusive teaching, as one means towards improving representation in Chemical Engineering.

Any PhD student that has done at least one semester of TA (this can be currently happening) is eligible – typically students in their 2nd-3rd year. Previous recipients of GAANN funding are eligible, but priority is given to first time applicants. Teaching Fellows recipients are likewise eligible. You must be a US citizen or permanent resident to be eligible for funding, but anyone is eligible to participate in most aspects of the program.

GAANN supported fellows will receive support for their stipend and tuition through project funds. GAANN supported fellows also receive payment for fees, in addition to the stipend.

GAANN fellows do a few hours of training over the summer and meet bi-weekly throughout the year to learn about pedagogy, inclusive teaching, do 2-3 lectures of mentored teaching in a core CBE course, and give/provide feedback to others in the cohort.

The application requires your CV, a 1 page statement of interest in an academic career (or potentially an academic career) and the impact of inclusivity in education, filing out the FAFSA form, and filling out the FAFSA data release form.
