University Prize Instructorship
Congratulations to the 2022-2023 UPI winners! This year's winners are Jared Berkowitz (History--Corporate Power and American Capitalism), Juliet Bottorff and Jasmine Quynh Le (Neuroscience--Central Nervous System Regeneration), Sarah Beth Gable and Miranda Peery (History and English--Violent Resistance: American Political Violence and Its Rhetorics), Samantha Leonard (Sociology--Violence & Intimacy), and Ray Maresca (Mathematics--Quiver Representations).
University Prize Instructorships, sponsored by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, awards a $7,671 stipend (an approximate amount which will align with the 2022-2023 per course rate) to advanced doctoral students to design and teach upper-division courses in their field of research. UPI instructors will also participate in a professional development cohort that meets monthly. Up to five instructorships will be awarded to candidates who propose courses that contribute substantially to the undergraduate curriculum and who have demonstrated excellence and commitment to teaching. Instructors may elect to co-teach and split the stipend equally. In this case, each applicant must fulfill the eligibility criteria and complete all parts of the application.
