How to apply

Ph.D. graduate students in or beyond their second year of graduate work and post-doctoral fellows are eligible to apply to the TAR@Hopkins Fellowship Program.

Please note: For the Fall 2016 and Intersession 2017 terms, the TAR program curriculum is being significantly revised. We are still accepting TAR fellows during this time period, however accepted applicants will be asked to work through a series of CIRTL training videos inside of the face-to-face workshops. There will also be a few scheduled face-to-face meetings to support your TAR project, the date and time of which will be established based on the group's availability.


Steps to Completing the JHU TAR Fellowship


Johns Hopkins University is a member of the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (CIRTL). CIRTL’s mission is to enhance excellence in undergraduate STEM education through the development of a national faculty committed to implementing and advancing effective teaching practices for diverse learners as part of successful and varied professional careers. One of the three core pillars which form the foundation of CIRTL is Teaching-as-Research or TAR. Teaching-as-research is the deliberate, systematic, and reflective use of research methodology by instructors to develop and implement teaching practices that advance the learning experiences and student learning outcomes.

Through a CIRTL grant aimed at fostering this approach to instruction, Johns Hopkins has developed TAR@Hopkins to provide opportunities that support teaching-as-research projects. The TAR fellowship program, open to doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows in any STEM discipline broadly interpreted, carry a stipend of $1,250 above the teaching stipend.

Each TAR Fellow is asked to provide a short report at the conclusion of the TAR project and agree to make a brief presentation to other doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows or to an identified alternate academic group.
