FGSS First-Year Writing Seminar Award Application

The Feminist, Gender, & Sexuality Studies Program announces the 2022-2023 FGSS First-Year Writing Seminar Award to be awarded to one or two graduate students for demonstrated excellence in teaching. Applicants must have completed their third year. The one-semester award will provide tuition and a stipend, equivalent to the current teaching assistantship stipend.  

Applicants are asked to propose a course on a topic of interest to, and written for, first-year students in the John S. Knight Writing Program. Course proposals should be driven by writing tasks built around issues substantively related to feminist, gender, and/or sexuality studies. 

Awardees will be chosen by the Graduate Review Committee of the Feminist, Gender, & Sexuality Studies Program. The Feminist, Gender, & Sexuality Studies Program will assign a course leader to provide advice and assistance in planning and teaching the course.  

Applicants who have not taught a First-Year Seminar must have scheduled Writing 7100, Teaching Writing, before teaching the proposed course.

Please include semester taught, course title, a brief course description, and any faculty instructors.

Please complete and submit the Pre-EPC form for your proposed course and email to Aidan Kelly (aidankelly@cornell.edu) by the application deadline.
