Arts/Science Collaborations in the STEM Teaching & Learning Facility: Two Fellows Programs for STEAMpower

Through the MSU Arts Initiative, the new STEM Teaching & Learning Facility is offering two unique opportunities for faculty, staff, and graduate students to learn and work together to build interdisciplinary collaborations across arts, humanities, and STEM.

STEAMpower Faculty/Staff Fellows. We seek four staff or faculty in any discipline (arts, sciences, social sciences, etc.) with a demonstrated interest in the intersections between STEM, humanities, and arts. Faculty/Staff Fellows will interact with other STEAMpower Faculty/Staff Fellows and Graduate Students as well as artists-in-residence from across MSU; create a deliverable on an art/science/culture project of their own design; and develop a curriculum that bridges the STEM-Arts divide. Fellows are also expected to present their work at an end of year symposium. Funds up to $10,000 are available per Fellow. The fellowship will run from Fall 2022 through Spring 2023. Application is live and available here – deadline is Aug. 25, 2022. Application questions are provided below for your convenience. 

STEAMpower Graduate Fellows. We seek four to eight graduate students in any discipline (arts, sciences, social sciences, etc.) with a demonstrated interest in the intersections between STEM, humanities, and arts. Graduate students will interact with and assist artists-in-residence and Faculty/Staff Fellows, create a deliverable on an art/science/culture project of their own design, and present your deliverable to the MSU community at the end of the academic year in whatever format makes sense to you! Graduate Fellows will also collaborate with Faculty/Staff Fellows to develop interdisciplinary teaching-related products. A stipend of $3000 per graduate student for the year is available.

Application questions are provided below for your convenience.
