Response for Proposal

ACLS invites research applications from scholars in all disciplines of the humanities and related social sciences. Faculty appointments are not required. The ultimate goal of the project should be a major piece of scholarly work by the applicant, which can take the form of a monograph, articles, digital publication(s), critical edition, or other scholarly resources. The ACLS Fellowship program does not fund creative work (e.g., novels or films), textbooks, straightforward translation, or pedagogical projects.

ACLS invites applications from scholars pursuing research in any discipline of the humanities and related social science on topics grounded in any time period, world region, or humanistic methodology. ACLS continues to welcome applications from scholars proposing disciplinary or interdisciplinary work in international and area studies, as it has since, in the years after World War II, ACLS worked with the Social Science Research Council to develop and sustain scholarly expertise focused on particular areas or cultural regions of the world.
