Applications for summer 2021 are due Monday, May 17.
The GSAS Fellowships in Academic Administration program allows advanced doctoral students in Arts and Sciences departments to apprentice in administrative offices across Columbia's campuses. This program is intended to enhance graduate student career preparation by supplementing the training GSAS students receive in research and teaching with an introduction to the day-to-day operations of the University. The experience allows students to cultivate a stronger professional profile and develop administrative skills in preparation for any future career.
Student Fellows are eligible in years three through seven of an Arts and Sciences doctoral program. They apprentice in an administrative office for a semester or more, mentored by an experienced administrator, guided in using their writing and organizational skills and research training to advance meaningful projects in their host office. Depending on the project, Fellows will be expected to spend six to ten hours per week working with the host office and engaging in mentorship activities, and to attend several professional development workshops over the course of the fellowship.
In summer 2021, all fellowships will be conducted remotely. GSAS will provide a $2,000 stipend to all Fellows. Assignments may be renewed in the fall, provided that the host office agrees to cover the $2,000 stipend for the Fellow's second term. Please see below for further details about the program. The application deadline is Monday, May 17.
