Applications are being accepted for the KCP Future Faculty Fellowship, a program funded by the State of Michigan. The purpose of the King-Chávez-Parks Future Faculty Fellowship Program is to increase the pool of academically and economically disadvantaged candidates pursuing faculty teaching careers in post-secondary education.
Funding may begin in summer or fall of 2023. Complete applications received by 4pm on March 15, 2023 will receive priority for consideration. Pending availability of funds, applications received will be considered on a rolling basis until the state’s application portal closes on April 30, 2023. Please note that April 30 is a Sunday, and no staff are available to assist with applications. Applicants are highly encouraged to submit well in advance of the portal closing.
Applicants will complete the following steps:
- Review the eligibility criteria to ensure eligibility (see step 1)
- Gather the materials needed for an application (see step 2)
- Create an account on the MiLogin for Citizens portal (see step 3)
- Submit an application on the MiLogin portal (see step 4)
KCP fellowships provide students up to $20,000 (MS students) or $35,000 (PhD students) to pursue their degrees. Funds may be used to support students, including faculty and staff, pursuing degrees at Michigan Tech. For Michigan Tech students, the Graduate School and nominating department must also contribute matching funds to help support the student.
Complete information about eligibility criteria and materials needed for an application is available on our web page. Please note that applications will be submitted through the MILogin Citizens Portal. Questions about eligibility or the application procedure can be directed to Dr. Debra Charlesworth.
