Governor's Teaching Fellows

The Governor’s Teaching Fellows Program is designed for faculty members of all public and private state colleges and universities, other than the University of Georgia. Fellows are selected on the basis of their commitment to excellence in teaching, interest in continuing instructional and professional development, ability and desire to contribute what they learn during their fellowship on their campus and a strong commitment and support from their home institution during their participation in the program. Any full-time, regular faculty member may apply.

The application deadline for the Summer Symposium is February 5, 2016. The summer session participants attend a two-week symposium held in May on the University of Georgia campus.

The application deadline for the Academic Year Program is April 22, 2016. The Academic Year Program participants attend six three-day symposia held throughout the academic year on the University of Georgia campus.
