The Michigan Fellows Society selects outstanding applicants for appointment to three-year fellowships in the social, physical, and life sciences, and in the professional schools. Eight fellowships are available, with an annual stipend of $60,000.  Four of these fellowships will be awarded in the humanities with the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. ​They seek a diverse and international pool of applicants and especially welcome candidates from underrepresented backgrounds.

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.

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, 2015, and September 1, 2018.
