frenchfries Posted February 22, 2011 Share Posted February 22, 2011 I guess I'm hoping that a current Grad Center student can answer these questions, but would love to hear from some enlightened recent admits as well! I've yet to hear about funding from the GC. In worrying about/planning for the possibility getting a fellowship, I'm hoping someone can explain how teaching works. I understand that PhD students typically teach two 3-hour courses at one of the various campuses around NYC. Time constraints and logistics aside, I'm currently curious about: 1) Tuition- is it covered if you teach two courses? 2) health insurance? is it offered? What does it cost? 3) What is the pay for one of these teaching fellowships? 4) How readily available are these teaching fellowships? 5) If you have a masters degree, can you begin the first year? (Do you want to?) 6) Tell us anything you think we should know that I'm not asking about! Hopefully a lot of these questions will be answered at the admit open day next week, but just thought I'd check with the reliable gradcafe community for the scoop.
