ACLS invites applications for the tenth 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 aim of the competition is to offer give teams of two or more scholars the opportunity to collaborate intensively on a single, substantive project. The fellowship supports projects that produce a tangible research product (such as a joint print or Web publication) for which two or more collaborators can take credit.
Fellowships will be awarded for a total period of up to twenty-four months, to be initiated between July 1, 2018, and September 1, 2020, and will provide up to $60,000 in salary replacement for each collaborator as well as up to $21,000 in collaboration funds (which may be used for travel, materials, research assistance, etc.). The total grant amount per project will depend on the number of collaborators and the duration of the research leaves but will not exceed $201,000 for any one project.
To be eligible, a project must involve at least two scholars who are each seeking salary-replacement stipends for six to twelve continuous months of supported research leave to pursue full-time collaborative research. In addition, the project coordinator must have an appointment at a U.S.-based institution of higher education; other project members can have appointments at institutions outside the United States or be independent scholars. All project collaborators must have a PhD degree or its equivalent at the time of application.
