About the NYU Shanghai Writing and Speaking Fellowship
The New York University (NYU) Writing and Speaking Fellowship (formerly part of Global Academic Fellowship (GAF) Program) in Shanghai, China enables accomplished individuals with a passion for teaching to provide academic support and enrichment to the students who make up NYU Shanghai’s multicultural student body.
This is a 10-month teaching and professional development fellowship and the primary assignment is to serve as English language writing and speaking tutors for undergraduates. Additionally, Fellows take on an “Institutional Enrichment Project” that matches their interests and skills and meets a need of the university. Finally, Fellows are expected to serve as staff facilitators during student orientations and key university events throughout the year. The award includes a $25,000 fellowship stipend, round trip transportation to Shanghai, medical insurance, and housing benefits.
