The Service-Learning Program at the Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning (CITL) invites graduate students from all schools and departments at IUB to apply to become Service-Learning Graduate Fellows for the 2013-14 academic year. SL Graduate Fellows are part of a learning community that explores issues related to service-learning and serve as a resource for other graduate students considering adopting a service-learning pedagogy.
• Six graduate students on the Bloomington campus will be chosen as SL Graduate Fellows for the 2013-2014 academic year.
• SL Graduate Fellows can either be new to service-learning or have already taught a service-learning course.
• SL Graduate Fellows will be part of a seminar to discuss common readings, local issues and curriculum development. Meetings will take place three times during the fall semester and three during the spring semester—the first meeting will be in early September (date to be determined on availability of selected SL Graduate Fellows). Meeting locations will vary; some may be held at local non-profit agencies. A variety of topics relevant to service-learning will be explored.
• Each fellow will receive a $500 award at the completion of the fellowship year.
Applications should be submitted electronically or in print and should follow these guidelines:
• In no more than two pages, please describe:
1. Your interest and experience with service-learning;
2. How you anticipate this fellowship will have an impact on your teaching; and
3. How you intend to raise the visibility of service-learning with other graduate students in your department as a result of this fellowship.
