KCP Future Faculty

Logo for the KCP program

The King - Chávez - Parks (KCP) Future Faculty Fellowship Program was created by the Michigan legislature in 1986 as part of the larger King/Chávez/Parks Initiative and it is intended to increase the pool of traditionally underrepresented candidates pursuing faculty-teaching careers or administrative careers in post-secondary education.  Preference may not be given to applicants on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, gender, or national origin.

KCP Future Faculty Fellowship Requirements:

  • U.S. Citizen
  • Not in current default status on any guaranteed student loan or KCP Loan
  • Completing a master's degree at a public university in Michigan.

The Future Faculty fellows award is intended as a fellowship for those persons who go on to teach or work in a administrative position at a two (2) or four (4) year public or private postsecondary institution.

GVSU Master's degree students who are awarded this fellowship may receive up to a maximum of $20,000. However, failure to fulfill the requirements of the Future Faculty Fellowship program will result in the award be converted into a loan payable to the State of Michigan.

At GVSU, KCP Future Faculty Fellow Applications are reviewed once per year in March. This review is conducted by a faculty committee and may include not only a review of the application, but also a screening interview.

Deadline of March 1.
