Fellowships for Visiting Scholars
The Armenian Studies Program (ASP) invites senior scholars in the Humanities and the Social Sciences to apply for the Manoogian Visiting Scholar Fellowship at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. The purpose of the Fellowship is to diversify the Armenian studies curricular offerings to undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Michigan.

Visiting Scholars, who are invited for one semester (Fall or Winter), will be asked to teach one class, participate in ASP sponsored events, and present one public lecture. Fellowships may also be offered for mini-courses to be taught over three or four weeks. Preference will be given to candidates outside the disciplines of history, language, and literature which are already taught by our ASP faculty. Previously awarded visiting scholars should wait seven years before applying for this program again.

The scope and number of fellowships awarded is contingent upon the availability of funds.
