Lilly Graduate Fellows Program


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:

In academic year 2014/2015, the Lilly Graduate Fellows Program will select a cohort of 10 fellows who are entering Ph.D. or equivalent graduate programs in humanities and arts at schools of their choosing. The 2015-2018 Lilly Graduate Fellows will enter graduate school in the fall, 2015.  

Over a three year period, these fellows, along with two mentors who are senior scholars at a Lilly Fellows Program Network School, 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:
   


  Four Conferences:
Lilly Graduate Fellows attend four 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.

Mentoring Relationship:
Lilly Graduate Fellows will develop a relationship with two mentors who are senior scholars at a Lilly Fellows Program Network School.

Online Colloquium:
Lilly Graduate Fellows and mentors, over the course of the three-year program, will participate in common readings and online discussions that explore the intersections of Christianity and higher learning by drawing on classical and contemporary works of art, literature, theology, history, and philosophy.  This colloquium requires an average time commitment of two to three hours per week. Cohorts in the past have engaged such thinkers as Simone Weil, Augustine, Dostoevsky, Dante, and Flannery O’Connor. 
Lilly Graduate Fellows will receive three annual $3,000 fellowship awards 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. To find the names and contact information for your campus representatives, click here.

LFP National Network Campus Representatives must submit up to three nominees for the 2015-2018 Program no later than November 18, 2014.

Finalists must attend an Interview Conference on April 9-11, 2015 (overseas applicants please contact us). Fellows must attend an Inaugural Conference on August 3-6, 2015. The LGFP will cover all expenses for these events. Final selection of the Lilly Graduate Fellows is made by a selection committee and Lilly Fellows Program staff. Ten graduate fellowships will be awarded.
