The Newberry Library is pleased to announce the competition for the Frederick Burkhardt Residential Fellowships for Recently Tenured Scholars, owing to the generous assistance of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
At the Newberry Library, Burkhardt Fellows join a lively community of scholars composed of long- and short-term fellows, local Chicago area scholars, and the Newberry’s professional staff. This collegial environment encourages interdisciplinary exchange, deepening and expanding the significance of projects in the humanities and related social sciences.
These fellowships support long-term, unusually ambitious projects in the humanities and related social sciences. The ultimate goal of the project should be a major piece of scholarly work by the applicant. ACLS does not fund creative work (e.g., novels or films), textbooks, straightforward translation, or pedagogical projects.
• Amount: $75,000
• Tenure: one academic year, plus institutional support for an additional period
• DEADLINE: September 26, 2013, 9 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.
Applications must be submitted through the ACLS Online Fellowship Application system (ofa.acls.org).
