Applications are currently open and accepted on a rolling basis. The University of Michigan will enroll up to 200 scholars in this program at any given time.
Applications should be completed by University of Michigan Units or Departments and consist of a completed application form, a recent CV of the scholar, a letter of support from the hosting unit’s Director or Department Chair.
The MVPS Program is intended to support research scholars in a virtual format. Accordingly, visa sponsorship, stipend payments, and office space are not provided. Scholars will receive a U-M uniqname, which will allow access to the library system, the University’s virtual collections, and select software tools, including email. The uniqname expires at the end of the sponsorship term.
Questions about the program or application process may be directed to MVPS-Program@umich.edu.
For Units and Departments hosting Virtual Visiting Scholars, the Provost’s Office is accepting applications for small honoraria to be offered to the scholar, if the Department/Unit organizes and hosts them for a virtual lecture. If accepted, the honorarium will be transferred to the scholar after the lecture. Applications for virtual lecture honoraria should be emailed to MVPS-Program@umich.edu.
