Michigan Humanities Emerging Research Scholars Program: Opportunity open to DACA beneficiaries


The University of Michigan is hosting an Emerging Research Scholars Program (MICHHERS) to encourage rising seniors, recent B.A.’s, and Master’s students to pursue a doctoral degree at the University of Michigan. The program runs from Monday June 11 to Saturday June 23. During this time, students learn about the different fields of study offered at the university, as well as the latest methods and developments from faculty in these departments. Students will also receive information and advice on applying to graduate school and pursuing careers inside and outside academia. This is an all-expenses paid opportunity, which includes: “$1,000 stipend; University Housing; Round trip travel cost (up to $550); Application fee waiver for U-M”

Here are the eligibility requirements:

  • “Rising seniors, bachelor’s degree holders, and those currently in terminal M.A. programs, who are United States citizens, permanent residents, or non-U.S. citizens with DACA. Please note, those who are currently applying to enroll in a doctoral program for Fall 2018 are ineligible to participate in MICHHERS.
  • students who come from an educational, cultural, or geographic background that is underrepresented in graduate study in their discipline in the United States or at the University of Michigan.
  • To apply, students should have a compelling record of academic accomplishments.
  • For 2018, students interested in the fields of Asian Languages and Cultures, Classical Studies, English, History, Linguistics, Romance Languages and Literatures, Sociology (qualitative), and Women’s Studies (any humanities field) are eligible.”

The deadline to apply is February 9, 2018 at 11:59pm EST
