Joint PhD Program Funding

October Deadlines

  1. (Rackham) Harold and Vivian Shapiro/John Malik/Jean Forrest Awards

    Rackham deadline: October 19, 2020

    Submit electronically to Rackham

    These awards were established by Harold T. Shapiro, former President of the University of Michigan, and Vivian Shapiro, former faculty member at the University of Michigan, to assist graduate students with interest payments on unsubsidized educational loans. Dr. John Malik, a devoted Rackham alumnus in Physics, established an endowment for the same purpose. Jean Forrest earned her master’s degree from Rackham in 1976, and in gratitude for her education, established an endowed fund to support graduate students with financial need. All three awards are made through a single competition.

  2. (Rackham) Lurcy Fellowship for Study in France

    This student-initiated application must be submitted directly to Rackham.

    The Georges Lurcy Charitable and Educational Trust seeks to promote friendship and understanding between the peoples of the United States and France and, secondarily, between Americans and Europeans in general. This is achieved by supporting scholarly activities and exchanges which allow members of one society to learn more about the people and civilization of the other society.

  3. Joseph Veroff and Katherine Luke Memorial Award

    Department deadline: October 5, 2020

    Submit electronically to Laura Thomas lshirley@umich.edu

    The fund will provide support for Conversations Across Social Disciplines (CASD). This is an exciting opportunity for joint doctoral students to identify key social issues (e.g., social justice, poverty, mental health) that will benefit from deeper dialogue between the social science disciplines and social work. Doctoral students will invite faculty members from social work and one of the social sciences to discuss this important social issue in order to provide insights and innovations. The doctoral students will serve as moderators and discussants of this conversation. The goal for the CASD is to increase dialogue and to create models for working across the social science and social work disciplines to find connections and opportunities for bridging disciplinary boundaries. Planning and implementation of the CASD will involve significant leadership by students with considerable opportunity for students to interact, augment, and apply the topics discussed. This forum builds upon a program that was originally developed by doctoral students in 2004.
