The College of Literature Science and the Arts (LSA) at the University of Michigan seeks outstanding scholars in the natural and social sciences whose teaching and mentoring, AND/OR, research and scholarship, AND/OR service and engagement will contribute to our interconnected goals of excellence, diversity, equity, and inclusion.
The LSA Collegiate Fellows Program aims to recruit and hire exceptional early career faculty and promote an inclusive scholarly environment. The fellowship provides one- two years of support for early career scholars with dedicated research time, mentorship, research and travel funding, and cohort- and program-based professional development opportunities related to scholarship and teaching.
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.
For the 2022-2023 academic year applications are welcome from natural science or social science fields represented in LSA academic departments. Applicants must apply through NCID’s application portal in order to be considered for a Collegiate Fellowship (linked below).
