University of Michigan LSA Collegiate Fellows

Application Deadline: Monday, October 4, 2021

The College of Literature Science and the Arts (LSA) at the University of Michigan seeks outstanding scholars in all liberal arts fields whose teaching/mentoring, and/or research, and/or service and engagement will contribute to our interconnected goals of excellence, diversity, equity, and inclusion.

The fellowship provides up to two years of support for early career natural scientists, humanists, and social scientists with dedicated research time, mentorship, research and travel funding, and cohort- and program-based professional development opportunities related to scholarship and teaching, to prepare them for possible tenure-track appointments in LSA.

The LSA Collegiate Fellows program was launched in 2016 as a major college initiative aimed at promoting an intellectually rich and inclusive scholarly environment, recruiting and retaining exceptional early career faculty scholars, and supporting these outstanding scholars who are committed to working with college colleagues to build a diverse, equitable scholarly and learning community.  The program is administered by U-M’s National Center for Institutional Diversity (NCID) in conjunction with LSA academic departments.

Applications are welcome from natural science, humanities, or social science fields represented in LSA academic departments. Please see the website listed below for a list of participating departments/units and other eligibility descriptions.
