Applications for the ACLS Leading Edge Fellowship 2023 are now open. The American Council of Learned Societies Leading Edge Fellowship program demonstrates the potential of humanistic knowledge and methods to solve problems, build capacity, and advance justice and equity in society.

The Leading Edge Fellowships place recent humanities PhDs with nonprofit organizations promoting social justice in their communities. Fellows take on substantive roles that draw on the skills and capacities honed in the course of earning the humanities PhD, including advanced communication, research, project management, and creative problem solving. This initiative is made possible through the support of the Mellon Foundation.
