The Office of the Provost and several Academic Affairs units provide funding opportunities for faculty members.
The Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT) sponsors competitions for grants to enhance teaching and learning at the University of Michigan.
This program, administered by the Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, provides support for visiting professors with traditional scholarly backgrounds as well as outstanding performers or practitioners in their fields of expertise. Visits are generally five days or fewer.
In a collaboration with the University of California, the University of Michigan offers postdoctoral research fellowships in science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM), economics, and political science, coupled with faculty mentoring, professional development, and academic networking opportunities.
The Provost’s Office and the Office of the Vice President for Research have each launched new programs to financially support faculty whose research, scholarship and creative practice have been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Provost’s Faculty Initiatives Program (PFIP) provides supplemental resources to help schools and colleges and other academic units to hire and retain faculty with a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion through scholarship, teaching and/or service; to assist the dual career partners of tenure track and tenured faculty; and to respond to unique opportunities. Funding proposals can only be submitted by a dean or his/her designate.
