The Bass Instructional Fellowship Program supports high-quality teaching experiences for Ph.D. students where normal means of funding are unavailable. It also helps students become more knowledgeable in online college teaching. The program offers fellowships for
- instructors of record (Bass IORs),
- instructional teaching assistants (Bass TAs), and
- online apprentices (Bass OAs).
Financial support for Bass Instructional Fellows is variable and dependent on the student’s need. If the student has support in place for the term in which they plan to participate, the Bass award can be purely nominal (i.e., no financial component.) If the student needs support for that term or semester, full financial support would be available.
