Duke-DKU Global Fellows Program

The Duke-DKU Global Fellows Program is designed to support Duke postdoctoral scholars and advanced graduate students whose records demonstrate excellence in teaching and an interest in pursuing an academic career. Duke-DKU Global fellows teach at Duke Kunshan University. Fellows will teach two courses over a five-month stay at Duke Kunshan. Courses might include sections of common courses, distinct elective courses, lab sections or recitations. Assignment of classes will be determined by fellow-specific expertise and by DKU teaching needs.

The award carries a $13,000 stipend ($17,000 for fellows who have completed their Ph.D.), coverage of tuition and fees at Duke University for a semester, travel costs to/from China, health insurance, a housing allowance, and a $1,500 allowance for costs related to research or course preparation.
