Mellon/ACLS Scholars & Society Fellowships

September 5, 2019

ACLS is now accepting applications for Mellon/ACLS Scholars & Society Fellowships. This fellowship program aims to amplify the broad potential of doctoral education in the humanities by supporting doctoral faculty as they pursue publicly engaged scholarship and advocate for diverse professional pathways for emerging PhDs. 

 

Scholars & Society Fellowships allow faculty who teach and advise doctoral students to pursue research projects while in residence at a US-based cultural, media, government, policy, or community organization of their choice. Fellows and their colleagues at host institutions are expected to create a mutually beneficial partnership in which they collaborate, interact, and learn about each other’s work, motivating questions, methods, and practices. The program supports projects at all stages of development, and welcomes applications that propose to deepen or expand existing research projects as well as those that propose new projects. 

 

In the 2019-20 competition year, ACLS will award up to 12 Scholars & Society Fellowships for tenure during the 2020-21 academic year. Each fellowship carries a stipend of $75,000, plus funds of up to $6,000 for research, travel/relocation, and related project costs. The award also carries $10,000 in support for each fellow’s host organization, and provides additional funding of up to $15,000 to sponsor on-campus and off-campus programming in the year following the fellowship.

 

To be eligible for the fellowship, applicants must

  • be employed in fulltime faculty positions in PhD-granting humanities departments or programs at a university in the United States, remaining so for the duration of the fellowship. US citizenship or permanent residency is not required.

  • commit to a nine-month residency off-campus and at the non-academic institution that they have proposed.

  • commit to participate in-person in two multi-day workshops (in late summer 2020 and late spring 2021) during the fellowship year.

The American Council of Learned Societies, a private, nonprofit federation of 75 national scholarly organizations, is the leading representative of American scholarship in the humanities and related social sciences. Advancing scholarship by awarding fellowships and strengthening relations among learned societies is central to ACLS’s work. This year, ACLS will award more than $25 million to over 350 scholars across a variety of humanistic disciplines.
