Teaching Internship Grants

Up to $1200 Fall or Spring

Teaching Internship Grants last one semester and should provide the student with a faculty supervised teaching experience in a college level course. Internships should be designed to enable students to gain some teaching experience as well as familiarize them with the range of activities engaged in by college instructors. These grants are mainly for students who have an interest in becoming college or university faculty and who would like to learn about the activities associated with that occupation. It is essentially an educational experience for the intern.

The teaching intern is not meant to be a glorified bookkeeper, nor intended to substitute for a graduate associate instructor in a course. The internship is not developed to its full potential unless it involves an intensive, carefully supervised collaboration between the faculty member and the student. It is incumbent upon the student to work out the nature of the internship with the faculty member with whom he/she will be teaching before the application is submitted. The letter of recommendation for the teaching internship should be written by the faculty member with whom the student will be working. Interns are frequently involved in the following activities: discussing teaching goals and techniques with the faculty sponsor; developing the course syllabus, leading a discussion section regularly, or in courses without such sections, delivering one or more lectures after close consultation with the instructor; counseling and tutoring students in the class; helping to direct students' research projects; and assisting in the preparation of study questions and examinations, all after careful preparation and with the supervision of the faculty sponsor. At no time will we support an intern who is involved in grading.

These grants are not intended to support or supplement undergraduate interns involved in ongoing departmental undergraduate internship programs that help staff large lecture courses. It is also very unlikely that a student will receive support to intern in a course he/she has not previously completed with the same faculty member and received a grade of A- or better.

**NOTE**: If you filed the FAFSA and are receiving financial aid (for example: Direct Loans, Pell Promise grants, 21st Century Scholars Covenant), and you receive one of the Hutton Honors College's grants for scholarships, your award from the Hutton Honors College may not be paid-out in the form of cash funds (i.e., as money paid into your Bursar account), but instead, may be used by IU's Office of Student Financial Assistance (OSFA) to reduce your student/parent loan burden or reduce your federal/state grant by the amount awarded to you by the HHC. To learn how your HHC award may impact your financial aid, please contact OSFA at
