Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Michigan offers fellowships in the areas of architectural research, material fabrication, design instruction and social justice. Each fellowship includes teaching related to the individual’s areas of interest, resources for the development of work, and an opportunity to share the outcome of the fellowships with the school at the end of the year.
The Muschenheim Fellowship offers design instructors early in their career the opportunity to develop a body of work in the context of teaching. Muschenheim fellows play a significant role in the definition of studio culture while pursuing their own creative endeavors. Proposals focus upon the development of a specific project individually or with students, outside of teaching or center upon a particular set of pedagogical themes to be engaged in the studio context.
The Oberdick Project Fellowship facilitates the development and realization of a significant exploration into some aspect of architectural speculation and production. Fellows are provided with resources for the execution of a project that may take the form of an exhibit, publication, installation, or any other material construction. Projects may range from the exploration of emergent building, fabrication, and environmental technologies to the realization of architectural works and endeavors typically unsupported within conventional models of practice.
The Sanders Fellowship supports compelling and timely research dealing with architectural issues. Research could dwell within architectural, urban, landscape, or cultural history or theory; architectural or environmental technology; or design studies. These agendas could emerge from recently-completed doctoral dissertations or other intense and rigorous research format. The fellowship will support both research and the development of research-related curriculum.
The Sojourner Truth Fellowship recruits scholars who will bring issues of race and ethnicity into teaching and research related to urban and regional planning for a semester or an academic year. Professors on sabbatical, faculty beginning teaching careers, students who are writing dissertations, reflective practitioners, and individuals at any other stages of their careers are invited to apply. Applicants should have interest in educating professional students and future scholars.
