Deadline: 25 September 2019
Nominations are open for American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) Fellowship program.
The ACLS Fellowship program includes a joint fellowship with the New York Public Library, as well as named awards made possible by generous donors.
ACLS invites research applications from scholars in all disciplines of the humanities and related social sciences. Faculty appointments are not required. The ultimate goal of the project should be a major piece of scholarly work by the applicant, which can take the form of a monograph, articles, digital publication(s), critical edition, or other scholarly resources. The ACLS Fellowship program does not fund creative work (e.g., novels or films), textbooks, straightforward translation, or pedagogical projects.
ACLS Fellowships are intended as salary replacement to help scholars devote six to twelve continuous months to full-time research and writing. The awards are portable and are tenable at the fellow’s home institution, abroad, or at another appropriate site for research. An ACLS Fellowship may be held concurrently with other fellowships and grants and any sabbatical pay, up to an amount equal to the candidate’s current academic year salary. Tenure of the fellowship may begin no earlier than July 1, 2020 and no later than February 1, 2021.
The fellowship stipend is set at three levels based on academic rank (or rank equivalency based on scholarly attainment): up to $40,000 for Assistant Professor and career equivalent, up to $50,000 for Associate Professor and career equivalent; and up to $75,000 for full Professor and career equivalent. ACLS will determine the level based on the candidate’s rank or equivalent rank as of the application deadline.
- Be a US citizen or permanent resident.
- have a PhD that was conferred at least two years before the application deadline. (An established scholar who can demonstrate the equivalent of a PhD in publications and professional experience may also qualify.)
- have had a lapse of at least two years between the last “supported research leave” and September 1, 2020.
