The University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning seeks applications for fellowships in the areas of architectural research, design, and pedagogy. Designers, practitioners, spatial activists and advocates, and researchers focusing on the intersection of race, ethnicity, gender, climate, and the built environment are especially encouraged to apply.

Named Fellowships

  • FISHMAN FELLOWSHIP: The Fishman Fellowship is a one-year teaching and research opportunity for leading early-career scholars and practitioners to generate the knowledge and capacity to improve urban futures.
  • ARCHITECTURE FELLOWSHIP: Taubman College Fellows spend their time with us developing 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; pursuing research and the development of research-relate curriculum, or advancing development and realization of a significant exploration into some aspects of architectural speculation and production.
  • SOJOURNER TRUTH PLANNING FELLOWSHIP: The Sojourner Truth Fellow position in the Master of Urban Planning Program was created as a way to engage scholars and reflective practitioners who can bring into our program rigorous attention to issues of race and ethnicity as they relate to the theory and practice of urban and regional planning.
  • SPATIAL AND RACIAL FELLOWSHIP: The Spatial and Racial Fellowship seeks scholars who focus on racial and spatial justice – one in architecture and urban design focusing on the built environment, and one in urban planning and/or architecture with a designated role as a co-investigator on our Egalitarian Metropolis research project. Both are two-year fellowships.
