Michigan Society of Fellows Postdoctoral Fellowships

Application deadline: September 27, 2016

The Michigan Society of Fellows, under the auspices of the Rackham Graduate School, was established in 1970 with endowment grants from the Ford Foundation and the Horace H. and Mary Rackham Funds. Each year the 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 $55,000.  Four of these fellowships will be awarded in the humanities with the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. We seek a diverse and international pool of applicants and especially welcome candidates from underrepresented backgrounds.


The Society invites applications from qualified candidates who are at the beginning of their academic careers, having received the Ph.D. or comparable professional or artistic degree between June 1, 2014 and September 1, 2017. Applications from degree candidates and recipients of the Ph.D. from the University of Michigan will not be considered. Non-US citizens may apply.
