The American Council of Learned Societies has opened its applications system for the 2017 cycle. ACLS offers several fellowship opportunities for faculty in the humanities. The programs that are of greatest interest to Spelman faculty are the Burkhardt Residential Fellowships for Recently Tenured Scholars and the ACLS Fellowships. Note that the Burkhardt requires some institutional commitment which must be cleared by the provost’s office. Also, this year ACLS is introducing the ACLS Project Development Grants specifically for faculty at teaching-intensive institutions. Faculty who submit promising proposals to the ACLS Fellowships but are not chosen for a fellowship may be awarded a grant of $5,000 to support their projects. The ACLS FAQs page will provide more information.
The deadline for the Burkhardt Residential and ACLS Fellowships is September 27, 2017 by 9:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time.
