Lecturers or lectors, seminar or section leaders, lab instructors, and professors are eligible for teaching prizes if they have a teaching appointment in the faculty of arts and sciences, have taught for at least three years, and have received at least two nominations.

Members of the Teaching, Learning, and Advising Committee are not eligible.

Graduate students in good standing in a Ph. D. program who have served in Yale College as Teaching Fellows (TFs) or Part-Time Acting Instructors (PTAIs) in the current academic year are eligible for nomination for Prize Teaching Fellowships.

The awards will be based upon excellence in performance as TFs or PTAIs , as attested to by undergraduate students and by supervising faculty. To be eligible for selection, graduate students must be making satisfactory progress towards the Ph.D. degree, as shown in the Dissertation Progress Report filed with the Graduate School.
Selection will be made in the spring by a committee co-chaired by the Director of the Teaching Fellow Program in the Graduate School and an Associate Dean of Yale College.
