The Detroit Mercy Jesuit Community is pleased to announce its program of faculty summer stipends for course development. The program’s purpose is to encourage and support faculty in developing new courses, or substantially modifying current courses, to advance the Catholic mission of Detroit Mercy.

Two stipends of $3,000 each will be awarded for the Summer of 2023. Faculty from all Detroit Mercy campuses are eligible to apply.

All full-time Detroit Mercy faculty are eligible, with preference to those who have yet to receive a Jesuit Community course development stipend within the past five years.

The due date to apply for the stipend is March 27, 2023. Awards will be announced by April 17, 2023.
