Grant of the Week: The Nancy Weiss Malkiel Scholars Award

Zoë Jackson | Nov 2, 2018

Every week, Perspectives Daily showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians which has been posted to our free Calendar. This week we are featuring the Nancy Weiss Malkiel Scholars Award. 

The Nancy Weiss Malkiel Scholars Award Program is accepting applications through December 3, 2018. This opportunity is for tenure-track faculty who are committed not only to research and teaching but also to building a more inclusive scholarly community. Applicants may not be going up for tenure during the award year (2018–19). 
Supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and administered by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation, the Malkiel Scholars Award offers a $17,500 stipend—$10,000 to be used for summer research support and $7,500 for research assistance during the academic year. While Malkiel Scholars may be working in any field of the humanities or social sciences, preference will be given to those whose work relates to 20th- and 21st-century American history, politics, culture, and society, with emphases including but not limited to African American issues, women’s issues, and/or higher education. 
Please share this opportunity with colleagues who may be interested in and eligible for the Malkiel Scholars Program. Additional information is available at www.woodrow.org/nwm.

This award is named in honor of Nancy Malkiel, a leading scholar of civil rights and race relations in early and mid-20th-century America; she also served for a record 24 years as Princeton University’s Dean of the College and mentored generations of students. It is structured to free the time of junior faculty who have passed their midpoint tenure review—including those from underrepresented groups and others committed to eradicating disparities in their fields—so that they can both engage in and build support systems, networks, and affinity groups that make their fields and campuses more inclusive.

End: December 3, 2018
