The architecture program at the University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning seeks applicants for fellowships in architecture. Our Program is committed to building architectural education upon a plurality of foundations—diverse epistemologies, experiences, histories, methodologies, and technical and conceptual capacities. In doing so, we understand that architecture is a cultural product that negotiates a complex multitude of voices and ideas, and a myriad of social, environmental, political, and aesthetic concerns.

The architecture fellowships at Taubman College are among the oldest and most recognized positions of their kind, offering early career opportunities for individuals seeking to make a significant and timely development of their work within an intellectually wide-ranging and dynamic academic setting. Each fellowship entails teaching related to the candidate’s area of interest, resources for the development of work, possibilities to interface with scholars and researchers in the wider university context, and the opportunity to share the outcome of the fellowship with the college. Fellows spend two years in residence, typically teaching three classes in their first year and four in their second, in addition to pursuing their fellowship project. Public dissemination of fellowship work takes place in the fall of the second year. These fellowships are not intended to support dissertation completion, post-doctoral stays, or serve as a pipeline for tenure track positions at the institution. While these are not post-doctoral fellowships (note the teaching demands and expectations of engagement in studio instruction), we welcome applications of recent doctoral graduates committed to design education. Candidates from a variety of backgrounds, training, and perspectives are encouraged to apply to these fellowships. 

The four fellowships offered are:

Research focused on some aspects of the range of social, formal, environmental, political, and aesthetic concerns that form the framework of contemporary and historical perspectives regarding architecture and urban issues.

Design efforts related to specific proposals, or general models, for architectural propositions addressing an area of interest to the fellow and of concern to the field at large. 

Projects centered on the development and realization of a significant physical production (explorations of building and environmental systems in fabrications, installations, and other formats of materialized exploration).

Fishman Fellowship
The Fishman Fellowship offers an opportunity for early-career scholars and practitioners in urbanism to develop a project that may take the form of a publication, exhibition, or symposium. The fellowship is open to those who have completed a PhD or other terminal degree in planning, architecture, urban history, urban design, or a related field. Scholars and practitioners pursuing work in the areas of urban technology and/or climate change are particularly encouraged to apply.
