Applications call for Mellon/ACLS Scholars and Society Fellowships 2020
The Mellon/ACLS Scholars and Society program aim 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. The program offers opportunities for faculty with full-time appointments in PhD-granting humanities departments or programs in the United States to engage significant societal questions in their research, serve as ambassadors for humanities scholarship beyond the academy, and deepen their support for innovations in doctoral education on their campuses.
Fellows should participate in two workshops that bookend the fellowship year—the first is designed to help fellows refine their projects and build connections with scholars and institutions engaged in public scholarship; the second, in the spring, will offer a chance for fellows to reflect on their experiences, learn and exchange ideas about innovations in doctoral education, and plan to program for the year following the fellowship.
In the 2020-21 competition year, ACLS will award up to 12 Scholars and Society Fellowships for a nine-month term during the 2021-22 academic year.
