Interdisciplinary Visiting Scholar Grants encourage the inclusion of guest artists, instructors, or practitioners from outside the primary course discipline. In general, this means someone who would not typically be appointed to teach in your school or college (so a sculptor in a drawing class would not typically qualify, neither would a mechanical engineer in a chemical engineering class. However, a musician in a mechanical engineering class would meet this baseline criteria). Exceptions may be considered on a case-by-case basis. Arts or design must be represented, either in the primary course discipline or in the discipline of the visiting scholar.
Grants up to $1,000 are available to any faculty member or instructor appointed in one of the four North Campus schools and colleges (A. Alfred Taubman College of Architecture + Urban Planning, College of Engineering, Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design, or the School of Music, Theatre & Dance) or School of Information.
Grant applications are accepted year-round on a monthly rolling basis, with the first of each month serving as an application deadline. Grant award decisions will be communicated by the 15th of each month following the application deadline.
