Mellon/ACLS Recent Doctoral Recipients Fellowships

ACLS invites applications for the third annual competition for the Mellon/ACLS Recent Doctoral Recipients Fellowships. These Fellowships are to assist young scholars in the humanities and related social sciences in the first or second year following completion of the Ph.D. This program aims to assist recent doctoral recipients to position themselves for further scholarly advancement. Eligibility for these Fellowships will be limited to scholars awarded Mellon/ACLS Dissertation Completion Fellowships in the prior year’s competition, the Alternates selected in that competition, and those awarded other dissertation fellowships of national stature that require applicants to complete their dissertations within a specified period. ACLS will award 25 Fellowships in this competition for a one-year term beginning between June and September 2010 for the 2010-2011 academic year, or between June and September 2011 for the 2011-2012 academic year. The Mellon/ACLS awards are designed for research and writing; accordingly, Fellows may not teach during the tenure of the Fellowship. The Fellowships provide a stipend of $35,000 to allow the Fellow to devote an academic year to research.

Due December 9, 2009
