Mellon/ACLS Scholars and Society Fellows

The Mellon/ACLS Scholars and Society program provides opportunities for faculty who teach and advise doctoral students to engage significant societal questions in their research, serve as ambassadors for humanities scholarship beyond the academy, and deepen their support for doctoral curricular innovation on their campuses. Scholars and Society Fellows pursue research projects while in residence at US-based cultural, media, government, policy, or community organizations, where they can create mutually beneficial partnerships in which they collaborate, interact, and learn about each other’s work, motivating questions, methods, and practices. In addition to supporting a year of research in residence, the awards also provide funding for fellows to develop on-campus and off-campus programming that draws on connections developed during the fellowship year and fosters greater understanding of the value of humanities scholarship and doctoral education beyond the academy. The program is made possible by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
