AAA Members Receive ACLS Fellowships

Congratulations to the 2014 American Council of Learned Societies Fellowship Recipients!

Since 1957, more than 9,500 scholars have held ACLS fellowships and grants. ACLS fellowships and grants are awarded to individual scholars for excellence in research in the humanities and related social sciences. The peer-review process used to select ACLS Fellows enables distinguished scholars to reach broad consensus on standards of excellence in humanities research.

In the 2013-14 competition year, ACLS made awards totaling over $15 million to nearly 300 scholars selected from over 3,000 submitted applications.
