Audre Chapman Scholarship for Excellence in Teaching and Curriculum Development

Four scholarships awarded: one for teaching excellence in each discipline: Composition, Technical Writing, and ESL Composition, and a fourth for excellence in teaching and outstanding contribution to curriculum development in composition. These scholarships are open to any English graduate teaching assistant or associate. 

The application materials listed below should be placed in JuDean Howerton's mailbox in 205 Morrill Hall.

See the main English Department Scholarship page for application deadlines.

  • A 1-2 page statement of teaching philosophy
  • A 1-2 page teaching CV including specific examples of excellence and innovation in the classroom and contributions to the program
  • A sample syllabus
  • Two examples of assignments or class activities
  • Letter of support from another instructor who has visited at least one class section
  • One complete set of student evaluations
  • On a separate sheet of paper, type the applicant's name, address, phone number and CWID.

Composition students should submit one application for both the composition scholarships.  

Scholarship recipients in both categories will be selected from one pool.  Judges for these scholarships will be the Directors of Composition, Technical Writing, and TESL Composition; the Associate Director of Composition; and the EGSA president (unless he/she is competing for the award, in which case the vice-president or another graduate student will be appointed by the head of the department).
