Martin Luther King, Cesar Chavez, Rosa Parks (KCP) Future Faculty Fellows Program

‚Äčkcp3_Final.jpgThe Center for Inclusion and Diversity, with the support of the KCP Initiative, sponsors the annual competition of the King-Chavez-Parks Future Faculty Fellowships.  The Fellowship Program provides an annual stipend to recipients for one year.  KCP fellows are eligible to reapply for additional years of support of up to three years or a maximum of up to $20,000 (master's level) or up to $35,000 (doctoral level).

The KCP Initiative, funded by the Michigan Workforce Development Agency, was developed with the intent to increase the number of Michigan's most educationally disadvantaged citizens to have the opportunity to complete college degrees and experience career success as active participants in a knowledge based global society and economy.  The KCP Future Faculty Fellowship is one of six divisions of the KCP Initiative.

The intent of this competitive fellowship is to increase the pool of traditionally underrepresented candidates pursuing faculty careers in postsecondary education by providing financial support to students in their pursuit of a master's or doctoral degree. Applications are encouraged from minorities, women, people with disabilities, and individuals from cultural, linguistic, and socio-economic backgrounds who would otherwise not adequately be represented in graduate student and faculty populations. The fellowship does not provide awards to persons obtaining a second master's or doctoral degree.
