Named TAship

Goal - $200,000 per annum 

The Named TAship program is based on annual donations of $5000, or more, typically pledged for at least three years.

Queen’s provides funding for teaching assistants, based on a relatively high ratio of students to instructors, which we are supplementing with this fund. We need approximately 40 sponsors per year, for the current complement of about 90+ undergraduate students in each year of the program, to ensure a high-quality learning environment in our laboratories, field trips and field schools. The fund benefits the students who work as Teaching Assistants, and the students being taught.                               

At this time:

Each $5000 donation adds two graduate or four undergraduate students to the teaching team.

The current level of funding is $90,000 per year (45% of our target of $200,000).
