This year, 65 ACLS fellowships were awarded to faculty to support research in the humanities and humanistic social sciences. The winners were selected from about 1,000 applicants.
“ACLS employs a rigorous multistage peer-review process to ensure that humanities scholars select those fellows deemed to represent the very best in their fields,” said Matthew Goldfeder, director of fellowship programs at ACLS. “This year’s fellows, chosen for their potential to create new knowledge that will improve our understanding of the world and its diverse cultures and societies, represent over 50 colleges and universities, and a vast array of humanities disciplines, including music, philosophy, art history and sociology.”
ACLS fellowships provide salary replacement for scholars who are embarking on six to 12 months of full-time research and writing. The program is funded by ACLS’s endowment, which has received contributions from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the council’s college and university associates, past fellows and individual friends of ACLS.
