Interested in Becoming a Teacher Mentor? Teacher’s College Columbia University

Hello Middlebury students!

The Office of Admission at Teachers College would love to meet you this fall, so mark those calendars!  We invite you to join us at a variety of dynamic virtual events we will be hosting that are accessible from anywhere. A full calendar of our offerings can be found here, but I would like to highlight a few in particular that you might find especially beneficial. 

Our Virtual Open Houses are a great way to explore the unique community that is Teachers College, Columbia University. During these sessions you will hear directly from admission and financial aid representatives, a panel of faculty, and current students.  You will also have the opportunity to learn more about your academic department of interest in a breakout session.

For a simple overview of TC’s history, mission, academics, research opportunities, and application process, we invite you to join an Admission Virtual Information Session, which will be led by a TC Admission staff member and include an Q&A session at the end. We also encourage you to tune in to one of our Virtual Tours, which are narrated by the voices who know the student experience best: (drum roll please…) our very own Student Ambassadors! 

Need tips, have questions, or simply want to get a better picture of our application process? If so, attend our Admission Virtual Workshop on Crafting an Ideal TC Application!  During this session, we will demystify the graduate school application process, while providing key tips on how you can strengthen your application materials.

While we won’t be traveling this fall, we will be attending an array of Virtual Graduate Fairs hosted by schools and organizations around the country. Feel free to stop by our (virtual) table and chat with a TC Admission representative!

Finally, our dedicated admission liaisons represent each of our programs and will be happy to offer one on one assistance whenever it is needed. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to your program’s liaison with any questions!

We look forward to connecting with you further on your pathway to graduate school!

Sincerely,

Ashley Blasland

Call for Applications: Master’s Program in European & Mediterranean Studies, NYU

The Center for European and Mediterranean Studies (CEMS) at New York University is pleased to announce a call for applications to its Masters in European and Mediterranean Studies program.

Applications for Fall 2021 are being accepted and reviewed on a rolling basisTuition scholarships will also be offered to candidates accepted to the MA program. It is recommended to apply as soon as possible, as funds are limited. The Master’s in European and Mediterranean Studies is an interdisciplinary program in the social sciences and humanities that is designed to prepare students for professions in the public, non-profit, or private sectors requiring an advanced understanding of Europe and the Mediterranean region. Our graduates also go on to pursue Ph.D. studies in history, political science, international relations, international development, and a range of other fields.   

In addition to courses offered by the CEMS Department, graduate students may take classes with a European/Mediterranean focus offered by other departments—including, but not limited to, history, politics, anthropology, cinema studies, French studies, Italian studies, Irish studies, and many other disciplines. Students may also take courses at other NYU schools—such as the School of Law or Graduate School of Public Service—as well as at Columbia University, through a special Consortium agreement existing between the two institutions.  

CEMS students have the advantage of being part of a small department with dedicated faculty, ensuring close access to professors, while being part of a large research institution with a wide variety of resources available to them. Additionally, if students want to gain more professional experience, they can take advantage of the many internship opportunities in New York City, most of them for academic credit. Students can also broaden their studies with various opportunities abroad, and are encouraged to apply for summer grants to perform research, to work, or to study abroad. In the past, our candidates have received funding to study at one of our several NYU campuses abroad, to work at various NGOs, think tanks, and other European organizations, or to carry out research either independently or in the program of their own choosing. 

For any inquiries, please email european.studies@nyu.edu or call 1.212.998.3838

Interested in Ph.D programs in the Sciences But Wondering How You Will Pay?

A great resource for finding Ph.D programs that are fully funded is through the online ProFellow site, a go-to source for information on professional and academic fellowships, created by fellows for aspiring fellows. You can download their free Directory of Fully Funded Graduate Programs and Full Funding Programs (download it here!) which lists more than 500+ master’s and doctoral programs and awards that offer full tuition coverage and a stipend.

BUT – this list of programs is NOT exhaustive! There are many more programs like this in other disciplines in the U.S. and abroad. And you can find the right programs for your goals using a free tool: Google!

You can sign up for their free webinar 3 Ways to Find Fully Funded Graduate Programs Using Google“, which will show you how they found the programs that they’ve listed on ProFellow so you can do your own research on programs that will help you achieve your goals.

You can use Google and Google Scholar to:

  • Find fully funded master’s and doctoral programs in specific disciplines and research topics
  • Find fully funded master’s and doctoral programs in your local community or region
  • Find fully funded master’s and doctoral programs outside the U.S.
