Psi Iota Teaching Fellow-in-Residence
Since 2008-2009, Rowan University's Psi Iota branch of Phi Alpha Theta (PAT), the national history honors society, has sponsored a fellow-in-residence program. The program is designed for an A.B.D. candidate finishing doctoral work but is also available to recent Ph.D.'s. Fellows have received an office with a computer, access to the University's libraries and databases, secretarial support, a modest fund for research or travel related expenses, and a combination of salary and honorarium. Fellows are typically required deliver a lecture and an overview of their research for an audience of advanced undergraduates in history. Fellows also have the opportunity to share a chapter or other in-progress research with faculty members in the History Department's works-in-progress seminar. Fellows teach two upper division courses in their general area of specialty, one in each semester of their fellowship.
The applicants for this part-time fellowship have been extremely impressive, with candidates applying from universities all over the United States and abroad, including:
As one can see below, the successful candidates have been successful both in their time at Rowan and in finding employment upon completion of their fellowships, which are usually renewable for up to two years.
