ACLS Leading Edge Fellowships

The Leading Edge Fellowship program aims to demonstrate the potential of people with advanced degrees in the humanities and humanistic social sciences to solve problems outside the academy. In the first two cycles of the fellowship program, recent PhDs in the humanities will help communities respond to issues caused by the Covid-19 crisis and advance public understanding of the pandemic. Support for the first two cohorts of fellows has been made possible by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation. A grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation supports the third cohort of fellows, named in Summer 2021.
