The Lilly Graduate Fellows Program supports, during the course of their graduate education, exceptionally well qualified young men and women who have bachelor degrees from LFP Network 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. The 2011-2014 Lilly Graduate Fellows will enter graduate school in the fall, 2011. 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. The program will reach completion with the introduction of the Graduate Fellows to representatives of the Lilly Fellows Program National Network at the Network’s annual national conference. More specifically, 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 church-related 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 a distance colloquium that involves group readings and discussions over the course of the three year program. This colloquium requires an average time commitment of 2-3 hours per week.
- Lilly Graduate Fellows will receive 3 annual $3,000 fellowship awards for use at the Fellows’ discretion.
