In order to encourage humanistic research in area studies, special funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities and ACLS has been set aside for ACLS/NEH International and Area Studies Fellowships to be designated among the successful applicants to the central ACLS Fellowship competition. Scholars pursuing research and writing on the societies and cultures of Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and the Caribbean, Eastern Europe, and the former Soviet Union will be eligible for these special fellowships.
Applications must be made to the ACLS Fellowship program and all requirements and provisions of that program must be met, with the addition that (a) International and Area Studies Fellows must be either US citizens or permanent residents who have lived in the US continuously for at least three years by the application deadline, and (b) fellows must plan to pursue their scholarship abroad during fellowship tenure.
One to two ACLS/NEH International and Area Studies Fellowships will be offered for the 2016-17 academic year. Applications must be submitted online at https://ofa.acls.org/.
