Research & Teaching Fellowship

The UMD Libraries' Research and Teaching Fellowship (RTF) prepares MLIS graduate students to be compassionate, student-centered, and evidence-based library practitioners who view teaching as both central and essential to their work as librarians. The Fellowship provides the education, training, mentorship, and support to enable students to succeed in a competitive job market.

RTF is a three-semester teacher-training program. The application window opens in early November each year and closes in late November or Early December. New fellows begin their work in January of each year. 

Learn more about the program eligibility, curriculum, compensation, and how to apply in the Research & Teaching Fellowship Program Guide.
