How to find summer funding?


Recommended Posts

I suppose one can always ask their department if there are any TAships/instructors needed for a summer session, but if there are none, what tips do you have for a grad to keep up their academic activity and build their CV during the summer months? Look for adjunct work? Of course, one can always find any random day job to fill up the months, but when it is time to apply for tenure track teaching positions after graduation, but there must be ways to have summers spent more productively? What do some of Gradcafe folks like to do?

Honestly, I'd focus on research during the summer, rather than getting more teaching in, especially if you already have teaching experience. Teaching a summer course doesn't provide that much useful experience because you have to greatly condense and, typically, dumb down the material due to the compact nature of summer courses.
