TC departments, centers, programs and individual faculty are encouraged to apply to sponsor an internship for one or more Zankel Fellows. Internship proposals are reviewed by a committee comprised of representatives from the Dean's Office, Office of School and Community Partnerships, Office of Development and TC faculty. The Zankel Fellowship Committee also determines the number of fellows for each internship. Every effort is made to fairly and equitably represent TC's ten academic departments in the allocation of internships.Faculty members who wish to sponsor one or more Zankel Fellows during the 2016-2017 academic year will be able to apply to sponsor fellows in early 2016. Full time faculty are eligible to apply and preference is given to tenure-track or tenured faculty. If you would like to receive a copy of the application form or have any questions about the application process and selection criteria, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The sponsor serves as liaison with the schools or agencies where students provide service and with the Office of School and Community Partnerships (OSCP), which manages the program. The internship sponsor mentors his/her Fellow, provides updates and reports as requested by the OSCP, and troubleshoots internship issues as needed
It is a requirement of the Fellowship that students and faculty working directly with children complete any fingerprinting and/or background checks that are mandated by the Department of Education and/or Department of Health policy. The OSCP is able to assist Sponsors and students with the fingerprinting process.
