Fellowships in Judaic Studies at the University of Michigan: Sephardic Identities, Medieval and Early Modern

Fellowship applications are accepted from both tenured and untenured faculty as well as from recent Ph.D.’s without a tenure-track position and professors emeriti. Where appropriate, applications are accepted from independent artists, documentary film-makers, and writers.

Depending on rank, experience, and length of stay at the Institute, Fellows receive compensation ranging between $45–66,000. The Frankel Institute is also able to reimburse up to $1,000 ($1,500 for those coming from outside the US or Canada) for business-like expenses that are incurred in association with your initial trip to Ann Arbor and eventual departure. These expenses do not include any type of moving expenses, such as the costs associated with shipping personal items or employing a moving vendor, and they do not cover travel expenses for family or significant others. Additionally, University of Michigan health benefits are available for fellows who carry a 50% or greater appointment for four consecutive months.

Applications are impartially reviewed by the Institute’s Steering Committee and at least two external evaluators drawn from the Institute’s Academic Advisory Board.
