The NYU Shanghai Writing and Speaking Fellowship enables accomplished individuals with a passion for teaching to provide academic support and enrichment to the students who make up NYU Shanghai’s multicultural student body.
The primary responsibility of the Fellow is to provide academic tutoring and support. In addition, Fellows develop their leadership, project management, and intercultural communication skills by providing curricular and co-curricular support. This might include mentoring student groups, developing support for students pursuing careers/graduate school, or launching new initiatives that contribute to intellectual life on campus. Fellows are immersed in a pioneering model of international higher education. Fellows are also invited to complete an independent writing project over the course of the academic year, with mentorship from a member of the NYU Shanghai Faculty.
The Fellowship is designed for high-achieving young professionals from a variety of disciplines with an interest in education, leadership and cross-cultural communication. Fellows have a demonstrated dedication to student learning and achievement and an interest in teaching. Accepted candidates with fewer than two years of continuous formal teaching experience may be required to complete TEFL training prior to the beginning of the Fellowship. Expenses related to certification will be reimbursed by NYU Shanghai.
