Grant of the Week: ACLS Leading Edge Fellowships

Alana Venable | Mar 7, 2022

Every week, Perspectives Daily showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship that has been posted to our free community calendar. This week we are featuring the American Council of Learned Societies Leading Edge Fellowship program.


The American Council of Learned Societies is pleased to announce the fourth competition of the Leading Edge Fellowship program, which demonstrates the potential of humanistic knowledge and methods to solve problems, build capacity, and advance justice and equity in society. Leading Edge Fellowships place recent humanities PhDs with nonprofit organizations committed to promoting social justice in their communities. Fellows take on substantive roles that draw on the skills and capacities honed in the course of earning the humanities PhD, including advanced communication, research, project management, and creative problem solving. This initiative is made possible through the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.


Fellows recieve a stipend of $62,500 in year one and $65,000 in year two, plus health insurance and professional development funding. Tenure is 24 months beginning in September 2022.

End: March 28, 2022, 9pm EDT
