The fund is intended to support the continued academic progress and well-being of students experiencing short term financial hardship who cannot reasonably resolve their immediate financial needs through external aid programs, or personal resources.

The School of Education has limited funding for Teaching Associate positions. Therefore, opportunities to apply for these positions are only offered when necessary as determined by the Director of the Undergraduate Programs. Teaching Associate positions will go to qualified doctoral students who have content knowledge and teaching experience in the required subject area. The academic qualifications and criteria for appointment as a Teaching Associate is set by the University and include a master’s degree or equivalent training and at least one year of teaching experience (such as Teaching Assistant) within or outside of the university. When an opportunity to hire a Teaching Associate arises, a call will be emailed to all SoE doctoral students. Interested students will reply to the call by completing an application and submitting a CV and TA evaluations to the Director of Undergraduate Programs by a specified deadline.
