Funds Available for Visiting Women and Minority Lecturers/Scholars
Michigan Tech is offering grants through the Visiting Women and Minority Lecturer Scholar Series to help departments bring visiting minority and underrepresented speakers to the University.
All departments are invited to participate in these programs. Applications are due by noon August 18. Notification of awards will be made by September 29.
These programs are designed to provide role models for underrepresented students and to give faculty a chance to interact with colleagues. In addition, the programs give visiting lecturers, scholars and speakers a chance to become acquainted with Michigan Tech and opportunities at this institution. Speakers' assignments might include classroom lectures, seminars, special-guest speaking engagements, mentoring in research or leading a summer course.
The visiting scholar, lecturer or speaker must be a minority or role model who is historically underrepresented in their field of expertise. Speakers' assignments would include at least one informal meeting with students and at least one lecture, workshop or seminar for Michigan Tech students.
