Writing a 2018 ACLS Fellowship application
Friday, May 5 | 3:30 pm | Curtin 939
No registration required
ACLS Application Deadline: TBD Summer 2017
The quite popular American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) Fellowships support research applications in all disciplines of the humanities and humanistic social sciences. Intended as salary replacement to help scholars devote six to twelve continuous months to full-time research and writing, the fellowships are portable and tenable at the fellow’s home institution, abroad, or at another appropriate site.
In this one hour workshop, led by Kari Whittenberger-Keith of UWM's Office of Sponsored Programs, we will review the application guidelines, discuss strategies for developing strong applications, and review other upcoming humanities funding opportunities. The workshop will focus on the standard ACLS Fellowship for Individuals, but there will be some mention of the ACLS Collaborative Fellowships, which are typically due at the same time as the fellowships for individuals.
Even if you are not intending to apply this cycle, familiarizing yourself with the ACLS format and guidelines can help you prepare to make other humanities-oriented applications (such as with the NEH) throughout the year. And even if you not sure that the ACLS is for you or you've never applied for a grant before, if you need some dedicated research time, this workshop is for you.
