About the Faculty Fellowship
Telluride House is a self-governing scholarship house for undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Michigan, including selected visiting faculty at UM as a way to enrich its communal life. It is a lively democratic community dedicated to intellectual inquiry, self-governance, and public service.
At the Telluride House, Faculty Fellows live in suites that can easily accommodate spouses and children. As part of their fellowship, Faculty Fellows are required to give one hour-long academic talk per semester on a subject in their field. In addition, Faculty Fellows are encouraged to involve themselves in the intellectual and collegial life of the House. Past Fellows have enjoyed informal dinner conversations with students, worked on public service projects with House members, and implemented interactive initiatives such as workshops, film series, and reading groups.
Short-term faculty guests will be hosted in a house guest room with access to a shared bathroom unless a faculty suite is available, in which case they will be hosted in a faculty suite. As part of their fellowship they are required to give one hour long academic talk during their stay.

The faculty fellowship application to Telluride House is a straightforward process. The first round consists of a short application and submission of a curriculum vitae and/or supplemental materials. Applicants selected for the second round will receive an interview, either in person at Telluride House in Ann Arbor or via telephone or Skype.
