Teaching Fellowships

Looking to continue teaching after gaining your Berklee graduate degree?

Teaching fellowships allows you to spend a semester teaching in one of Berklee’s CityMusic schools, articulation partner schools, or Berklee International Network schools. If selected, you will receive a stipend of $3,000 from Berklee; the host school will complement the stipend either financially, with housing, or other in-kind support.

The program is available to students who have recently completed their master’s program, and is part of the optional graduate internship program, taking 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 especially designed for master’s students who have completed programs in performance and are interested in teaching, but applications are open to all recently graduated master’s students.

If you plan to apply, it is recommended that you complete PS-631 Performance Pedagogy or an equivalent course, as part of your graduate education.
