The Tribal College Faculty Fellowship offers financial aid to selected faculty members currently working at tribally controlled colleges to attend the Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC) March 19-22, 2014 in Indianapolis, Indiana. We are offering two Tribal College Faculty Fellowships in the amount of $750 each.
Featuring over 500 sessions focusing on teaching practices, writing and literacy programs, language research, history, theory, information technologies, and professional and technical communication, the annual CCCC meeting provides a forum for thinking, learning, networking, and presenting research on the teaching and learning of writing.
With this Fellowship, CCCC hopes to create new opportunities for Tribal College Faculty members to become involved in CCCC and for CCCC to carry out its mission of serving as a truly representative national advocate for language and literacy education.
How to Apply
The deadline for the 2014 award is November 15, 2013. Please submit an application letter (on institutional letterhead) describing:
- Who you are as a teacher and what you teach at your tribal college
- What your research interests are
- What you hope to gain from the experience of attending CCCC (how it could help you in your teaching or research)
Send your application letter to firstname.lastname@example.org
A selection committee including American Indian Caucus members will review applications for the Tribal College Faculty Fellowship. Fellowship awards will be based on overall quality of the application letter.
You do not need to present at CCCC in order to qualify for this award.
