Application Process


Our Teaching Fellows play one of the biggest roles in driving our scholars’ academic outcomes and ensuring they have a memorable and engaging summer. Accordingly, applicants undergo a rigorous and selective application process in order to ensure we are hiring Fellows that are the perfect fit for our program. Our application process has three rounds, which are outlined below:

Initial Application

The first round of the application process entails completing background information questions (contact information, education, relevant skills and experience), answering 3 short-answer questions, and providing the names and contact information of two references, and uploading a resume.

Demo Video Lesson with Lesson Plan 

In the second round of the application process, we require the submission of a 5-7 minute demo video lesson and corresponding sample lesson plan. We will provide 3-5 objectives to choose from and are looking for your ability to engage the camera and organize your ideas.  

Phone Interview

If you are invited to the final stage of the application process, our Fellow Recruitment Coordinator will contact you to schedule a time for a phone interview. During this round, we also require the submission of a reference form from a previous employer/ manager, volunteer supervisor, or professor. We will email the reference contacts you indicate in round one of the application. Please notify your reference contacts beforehand, as we will not consider your application complete until we receive at least one completed reference form for you.  

Applications are closed for Summer 2017.
