Fellowships & Grants | The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS)

The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) is pleased to announce that its 2020-21 competitions with fall deadlines are now open and accepting applications.

ACLS offers fellowship and grant programs that promote research across the full spectrum of humanities and humanistic social science fields and support scholars at all stages of their careers, from the advanced graduate student level onward. ACLS invites applications from faculty on and off the tenure track as well as independent scholars. 

Our peer review and award processes aim to advance inclusive excellence, and we welcome applicants from groups that are underrepresented in the academic humanities and from across the diverse landscape of higher education.

Updated descriptions for 2020-21 competitions are available for programs with fall deadlines:https://www.acls.org/Fellowship-and-Grant-Programs/Competitions-and-Deadlines. Deadlines vary. The online fellowship and grant administration (OFA) system is now open for applications to these programs. Information and OFA access for programs with later deadlines are forthcoming.
