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

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 recruiting and retaining exceptional early career scholars with demonstrated commitments to building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive academic community. The program is administered by U-M’s National Center for Institutional Diversity (NCID) in conjunction with LSA academic departments.

Eligibility: Applications are welcome from any natural science, humanities, or social science field represented in LSA academic departments. Please see website listed below for list of departments/units and other eligibility descriptions.
