ACLS invites applications for the ninth annual competition for ACLS Collaborative Research Fellowships, which support small teams of two or more scholars collaborating intensively on a single, substantive project in the humanities and related social sciences. The goal of the project should be a tangible research product (such as joint print or web publications) for which at least two collaborators will take credit. The program is funded by a generous grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
Fellowships provide up to $60,000 in salary-replacement stipends for each collaborator to take a semester- or academic year-long supported research leave, as well as up to $21,000 in project funds, which may be used for such purposes as travel, materials, or research assistance. The total amount of a fellowship for any collaborative project will vary depending on the number of collaborators and the duration of research leaves, but the total amount of stipends may not exceed $180,000 for any one project. Total budget is limited to $201,000 for any one project. The fellowships are for a total period of up to 24 months.
Deadline: September 27, 2017
