Brown-Tougaloo Partnership Programs

The Brown-Tougaloo Partnership Faculty Fellows Program is a semester-long teaching opportunity at Tougaloo College in Mississippi. Fellows teach up to two undergraduate courses (either during the fall or spring semester), engage fully in the academic, administrative and intellectual life of faculty, and meet regularly with a faculty mentor at the College.

Brown doctoral candidates from all disciplines are encouraged to apply.


Applications to teach in the spring semester are due October 15. In preparation, you should obtain DGS approval, identify a faculty mentor at Tougaloo College and develop a course proposal. Additionally, your completed application to both institutions should include: a CV and cover letter, a course proposal (not a full syllabus), a letter of recommendation from your Director of Graduate Study, evidence of teaching experience and support from Tougaloo College.
