hi augustmaria--and everyone wondering about indiana...
Re: [augustmaria] Indiana Funding
i'm a second-year poet there. i thought i should clear up the funding questions, because i looked at the website again and i can see how you might have questions. everyone gets about the same funding a year, fellowship or no. here's how it works--your first year, you have a 1-1 teaching load, with about a $4000 fellowship. for each class you teach, you get $4000, so it works out to $12,000 for the year. the next year, unless you have a fellowship, you teach a 1-2 load and make a little over $12,000. otherwise, with the two-year fellowship, you teach a 1-1 load. the final year is the same as the second year. the chancellor's minority fellowship, dean's minority fellowship and the educational opportunity fellowship are a slightly different ball game, but, at least with the chancellor one, i know that the teaching load is the same.
hope this helps.
feel free to pm me any indiana questions.
