Lilly Fellows Program in Humanities and the Arts

Lilly Fellows Program in Humanities and the Arts Graduate Fellows Program

Deadline: November 1

The Lilly Graduate Fellows Program supports, during the course of their graduate education, exceptionally well qualified Protestant and Catholic young men and women who have bachelor degrees from LFP Network Schools (see website for LFP schools) and who are interested in becoming teacher-scholars at church-related colleges and universities in the United States.

The Three Year Program: Each year, the Lilly Graduate Fellows Program selects a cohort of 16 fellows who are entering Ph.D. or equivalent graduate programs in humanities and arts at schools of their choosing. Over a three year period, these fellows, along with two senior mentors, will communicate and collaborate with each other in areas of research, teaching, and professional development. Lilly Graduate Fellows will participate in the following programmatic objectives

  • Lilly Graduate Fellows attend 4 conferences over the course of three years. These conferences allow Fellows to collaborate with each other and with senior scholars and luminaries who integrate research, teaching, vocation, and an interest in Protestant and Catholic higher education.
  • Lilly Graduate Fellows will develop a relationship with two mentors who are senior scholars at a Lilly Fellows Program Network School.
  • Lilly Graduate Fellows and mentors participate in group readings and online discussions over the course of the three year program.
  • Lilly Graduate Fellows will receive 3 annual $3,000 stipends for use at the Fellows’ discretion.

Nomination: All nominees for the Lilly Graduate Fellows Program must be nominated by their LFP National Network Undergraduate institutions. Each Network Institution can nominate up to three nominees. To inquire about nomination, please contact the LFP Network Representative at your Undergraduate Institution.
