U-M African Presidential Scholars Program (UMAPS)

University of Michigan

The University of Michigan (U-M) African Presidential Scholars (UMAPS) program brings early career faculty from universities in Ghana, Liberia, South Africa, and Uganda to Ann Arbor for residencies lasting up to six months. Scholars are paired with a faculty mentor during their stay and have full access to U-M’s resources to further their work on a research project, an academic degree, publications, grant proposal, or other relevant activity. The program supports the development of the next generation of African scholars by integrating them into international academic networks, and it internationalizes U-M by generating research and teaching collaborations across diverse disciplines, from engineering to African literature. Scholars receive a living stipend and RT airfare.
