SCHOLAR Sprints @ U-M Library

Scholar Sprints is sponsored by U-M Library Connected Scholarship. Sprint teams may include experts from across many Library divisions, including Collections, Learning & Teaching, Library Information Technology, Michigan Publishing, Research, and the Taubman Health Sciences.

Up to four Sprint candidates will be accepted each cycle. The teams gather in a shared space during the Sprint. Breakfast and lunch are provided. Each selected candidate receives a cash award upon completion.

Our program is modeled after Research Sprints, a faculty support concept developed by the University of Kansas Libraries in 2016 and later introduced at the University of Minnesota Libraries in 2017.
