Teaching Fellowships

Looking to teach after earning your Berklee graduate degree?

This fellowship allows you to spend a semester teaching at a specific partner school, organization, or festival. If selected, you will receive a stipend of $5,000 from Berklee; the host school will complement the stipend either financially, with housing, or with other forms of support. This year's open teaching fellowships include FeduJazz at the Dominican Republic, Furtados School of Music (India), Josiah Quincy Orchestra Program (Boston), Panama Jazz Festival, and Phoenix Conservatory of Music.

The program is available to students who have recently completed their graduate program, and it's part of the optional graduate internship program that takes place in the fall semester following degree completion.  

Application Process

The program follows the same processes as all Berklee graduate internships

  1. The selected graduate students will apply for defined positions.
  2. The students will work with the site and the internship administrator to define learning outcomes.
  3. A learning agreement will be developed and approved by the site and the student and the respective program director.


Entrance Requirements

The program is designed for master's degree students who have completed programs in performance and are interested in teaching, but applications are open to all recent master’s degree graduates.

Please review the job descriptions for this year's teaching fellowships. In your application, you can indicate which teaching sites interest you. If selected as a teaching fellow, you will be notified of your assigned site.
