Faculty Fellowships

The Institute of Computing and Cybersystems and the Great Lakes Research Center are accepting applications for Faculty Research Fellowships for fiscal year 2025.  Through this award, tenure-track faculty will be able to buy out of a course during the Fall 2024 and/or Spring 2025 semesters.  In return, fellows will perform preliminary research and experiments in support of new research, develop and submit proposals to external funding opportunities, and report their activities and achievements to ICC and/or GLRC.  Subsequent awards following the fellowship will run through ICC and/or GLRC to support ongoing member support activities. 

Applications are still open! Reviews for applications began on Monday, April 15, 2024. Submissions after this point are reviewed on pending funding availability.

Particularly encouraged elements include interdisciplinary teams, teams including external collaborators, and a clear connection to growing the relevant research community at Michigan Tech. Applicants should consider as a general benchmark submission of a minimum of three funding proposals totaling more than $2 million, although more proposals and larger funding amounts are encouraged as are creative pursuits or funding opportunities outside of this general benchmark. 

Please email for questions and to submit an application.
