Charles A. Ryskamp Research Fellowships

ACLS invites applications for the ninth annual competition for the Charles A. Ryskamp Research Fellowships. These fellowships support advanced assistant professors and untenured associate professors in the humanities and related social sciences whose scholarly contributions have advanced their fields and who have well-designed and carefully developed plans for new research. The fellowships are intended to provide time and resources to enable these faculty members to conduct their research under optimal conditions. The ultimate goal of the project should be a major piece of scholarly work by the applicant. ACLS will award up to 12 Fellowships in the 2009-2010 competition. Each fellowship carries a stipend of $64,000, a fund of $2,500 for research and travel, and an additional 2/9 of the stipend ($14,222) for one summer's support, if justified by a persuasive case. Ryskamp Fellowships are intended to support an academic year of research, plus an additional summer's research if justified.
