Call for Proposals: Frederick Burkhardt Residential Fellowships for Recently Tenured Scholars

The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) is now accepting applications for Frederick Burkhardt Residential Fellowships for Recently Tenured Scholars. These fellowships, which are made possible by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, support long-term, ambitious projects in the humanities and related social sciences.

The Burkhardt program includes fellowships for recently tenured professors to take up residency at one of 13 participating research centers, as well as fellowships available solely to recently tenured faculty at liberal arts colleges to support an academic year of residence at an academic department/program or humanities center at a US-based university. Liberal arts college applicants may apply for either opportunity and should select the type and location of residency that will best serve their project. In the 2017-18 competition, ACLS is offering awards carrying a stipend of $95,000 plus up to $7,500 for research costs and related scholarly activities, and up to $3,000 for relocation costs.

Applications must be submitted online by 9pm EDT on September 27, 2017. For more information about eligibility criteria and how to apply, please visit the program’s website:
