American Council of Learned Societies Fellowship Recipients


Composed of 71 national scholarly societies, the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) is the leading advocate of advancing scholarship in the humanities and related social sciences. Through the organization’s activities and through its fellowship program, the ACLS seeks to increase the level of cooperation between different humanistic disciplines and to support scholarly work that creates new knowledge that benefits our understanding of the world. ACLS Fellowships are intended to support either junior or senior scholars for one year with the ultimate purpose to generate a major scholarly work. The recipients must have an exemplary record of previous scholarly achievement and a research proposal that promises to enrich the relevant field of study.
