American Council of Learned Societies Collaborative Research Awards

ACLS invites applications for the ACLS Collaborative Research Awards. These awards support collaborative research in the humanities and related social sciences. Collaborations need not be interdisciplinary or inter-institutional, but must involve at least two scholars; applicants at the same institution must demonstrate why local funding is insufficient to support the project. It is hoped that projects of successful applicants will help demonstrate the range and value of both collaborative research and inquiry in the humanities, and model how such collaboration may be carried out successfully. Collaborations that involve the participation of assistant and associate faculty members, or that of scholars at different kinds of institutions, are particularly encouraged. Maximum award is up to $140,000 per project, with no more than $60,000 awarded to a single participant for salary replacement for up to a total tenure period of 24 months, to be initiated between July 1, 2009 and September 1, 2011.

Due November 12, 2008
