President's Fellowship Program
The Gallaudet University President's Fellowship program supports post BA deaf and hard of hearing full-time graduate students in their pursuit of a Ph.D. or terminal degree in an academic discipline. The goal of the program is to increase the number of deaf people qualified for teaching positions at the University level. There is no guarantee of future employment at Gallaudet, but a two-year commitment to teaching at Gallaudet is expected if a faculty vacancy occurs.
The fellowship provides up to $18,000 in tuition per year; an annual stipend in return for teaching duties at Gallaudet University; academic privileges such as library, WLRC, and E-mail access, a mentoring program, and the option of dormitory accommodations on the Gallaudet Campus (with adjustment of the stipend for this option.)
Up to five fellowships will be awarded per year. Support is renewable, based upon the results of annual review of the student's progress towards the degree and of teaching performance, contingent on available funding, for up to five years. Renewal of the annual appointment is at the discretion of the University and is not automatic. Regular employees of the University are not eligible for this program.
