New England Literature Program

Welcome to the website for the New England Literature Program (NELP) at the University of Michigan. Whether you are a prospective NELPer looking to find out how to apply, a former NELPer looking to reconnect, or simply interested in learning more about the program—you'll find everything you need to know about NELP here.

                                          * * * 


January 25: Our NELP 2022 cohort is set! Congrats to all--and if you didn't make it this year, please try again for 2023 if you don't end up coming in from the waitlist. On that note: You can STILL apply to NELP if you missed the Priority Deadline; we do have a waitlist of folks who hope to join us, and every ear at least a couple students have a change of plans for the spring and end up having to withdraw. If you apply at this point, a successful application will get you added to that waitlist. In any given year, we never know if one or two people will end up joining us from the waitlist, or if that number will be closer to six or more. The application is still up and open; if you'd like to apply to be added to the NELP 2022 waitlist, get in touch with NELP Director Aric Knuth.


December 14: IMPORTANT NOTE!!  The due date for the NELP 2022 application has  changed and is earlier than originally announced; for Priority Consideration, you should have all your application materials in by 5pm on Wednesday, January 12.  


November 27, 2021. The NELP 2022 Application is LIVE. Find it on the Prospective Students tab of the website. And if you missed the Mass Meeting last week, do come join us in December for the (smaller but always helpful) Inf meeting in December. Click the Important Dates tab for more info. 


October 8, 2021: We have a day, time, and room for the big MASS MEETING for NELP 2022, which is now set for 7pm on Tuesday, November 16 in Angell Hall Auditorium B. This meeting is the BEST way to learn about NELP--as it's desribed by last year's students, who will talk to you about what to expect, why the program is so rewarding, and help you determine whether or not it's for you. If you can't make it, there will be another, smaller version of this meeting at the end of the term in December. 

September 1, 2021: The new term is up and running...Welcome Back!  Check here for updates regarding NELP 2022!! You definitely want to try to make it to the big NELP MASS MEETING in mid-November, to hear about the program from last year's NELPers. More info coming soon!
