In a press release published March 5, 2018, the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation has announced the creation of the Course Hero-Woodrow Wilson Fellowship for Excellence in Teaching.
Created by the online learning library Course Hero and administered by the Woodrow Wilson Foundation, this new fellowship program will support rising junior professors who love teaching, demonstrate excellence as educators, and are making their mark as exceptional researchers. Course Hero and the Wilson Foundation have conceived the grant as a “genius grant,” emphasizing the importance of balancing scholarly excellence and outstanding undergraduate teaching practices.
In its inaugural round, the program will support five Course Hero-WW Fellows, awarding one-year, one-time fellowships of $40,000. Eligible candidates will be tenure-track faculty either in the arts and sciences, or in a business school, who have successfully completed their institutional review at the midpoint of their progress toward tenure.
Applications are due April 30.
