Fellowships & Funding: Lilly Fellows Postdoctoral Teaching Program

Lilly Postdoctoral Fellowships are two-year residential fellowships for teacher-scholars who seek to renew and enrich their intellectual and professional lives while preparing for leadership roles at church-related institutions of higher learning. Each academic year, up to three Fellows are appointed for two-year periods. Fellows are selected from applicants who have an interest in the relationship between Christianity and the academic vocation and seek a career at a church-related college or university. Fellows are in residence at Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, Indiana.

Lilly Fellows are incorporated into a community of Christian teacher-scholars through:

Teaching experiences in seven courses over two years in appropriate departments and Christ College (Honors College) at Valparaiso University
Mentoring over the course of two years by a senior faculty member from the Fellow's discipline or Christ College
Participation in weekly meetings of a two-year colloquium program led by Senior Fellows from Valparaiso University
Research opportunities for scholarly or creative work in the Fellow's field and in the relationship of Christianity to the academic vocation
Opportunities to develop contact with representatives selected from the Program's National Network of Church-Related Colleges and Universities
Assistance in the second year with post-doctoral career planning and placement
