Michigan Society of Fellows seeks applicants


Deadline:
Mon Oct 03, 2011 16:15

The Michigan Society of Fellows seeks applicants for 2012 - 2015 Fellowships.  Applications are due by October 3; visit http://societyoffellows.umich.edu for details.
The Michigan Society of Fellows was founded in 1970
through grants from the Ford Foundation and Horace H. Rackham School of
Graduate Studies for the purpose of promoting academic and creative
excellence in the humanities, the arts, the social, physical, and life
sciences, and in the professions. In 2007, the Mellon Foundation awarded
a grant to add four Mellon Fellows annually in the humanities,
expanding the number of fellowships awarded each year from four to
eight. The objective of the Society is to provide financial and
intellectual support for individuals holding advanced degrees in their
fields, who are selected for their outstanding achievement, professional
promise, and interdisciplinary interests. We invite applications from
qualified candidates for three-year fellowships at the University of
Michigan.
Candidates should be near the beginning of their professional
careers. Those selected for fellowships must have received the Ph.D.
degree or comparable artistic or professional degree between June 1,
2009, and September 1, 2012. Fellows are appointed as Assistant
Professors in appropriate departments and as Postdoctoral Scholars in
the Michigan Society of Fellows. They are expected to be in residence in
Ann Arbor during the academic years of the fellowship, to teach for the
equivalent of one academic year, to participate in the informal
intellectual life of the Society, and to devote time to their
independent research or artistic projects. This is not an
artist-in-residence program but rather an opportunity to develop one’s
work in conversation with fellows from a range of disciplines during the
three years of the fellowship. Applications from degree candidates and
recipients of the Ph.D. or comparable artistic or professional degree
from the University of Michigan will not be considered.
Applications will be reviewed by Society members and University
faculty. Final selections will be made in late January by Senior Fellows
of the Society. Eight Fellows will be selected for three-year terms to
begin September 1, 2012. The annual stipend will be $52,000.
The online application is available at: http://societyoffellows.umich.edu

Application Deadline: October 3, 2011
