Breadth Fellowship (for PhD Students only):
Teaching Fellowships in the Writing, Speaking, and Argument Program
The Writing, Speaking, and Argument Program offers teaching fellowships for graduate students in the Eastman School. Through this fellowship, graduate students design their own version of Reasoning and Writing in the College (WRT 105), a theme-based first-year writing course. All instructors accepted into the program will teach one section of WRT 105 in fall and the same course in spring, participate in our training program, and attend the program orientation at the end of August. The minimum commitment for Eastman School applicants is two years; however, successful performance is required for reappointment after the first year. Compensation packages vary depending on whether graduate students reside in the College or in the Warner School, as well as on individual funding situations.

The Raymond N. Ball Dissertation Year Fellowship similarly funds students who are completing their dissertations. The University of Rochester awards this fellowship to several outstanding graduate students in the humanities (including music), economics, or business administration fields. The award is made by the University dean of graduate studies based on nominations from the relevant departments, and Eastman students have received this fellowship in past years.
The Elsa T. Johnson Fellowship, a one-year award that carries a stipend of around $14,000, is available for musicology students in the dissertation-writing stage of their work. Information about the annual competition for this fellowship is available in the musicology office.
The Eastman Professional Development Committee (PDC) awards funds for significant professional opportunities for faculty and students. This is a competitive application process that includes funding in three categories: faculty, individual students, and chamber groups.
