In keeping with Frederick Douglass' life of public service and commitment to equity and access, the Frederick Douglass Institutes of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) are offering teaching opportunities to graduate students who are pursuing careers as university faculty and who are entering the final year of terminal degree and/or doctoral programs. As a Frederick Douglass Teaching Fellow, scholars will teach and/or co-teach one course during the Summer Sessions, continue their research, and contribute to the life of the university. Dates of employment vary among universities, but typically run from May 2014 thru August 2014. At the discretion of individual campuses,Douglass scholar applicants may also be considered for full or partial year appointments.

Applicants from diverse cultural backgrounds, especially those from historically underrepresented groups, are encouraged to apply. Douglass Fellowships for 2014 are available at the PASSHE universities listed below.
