ACLS Public Fellows

Submission/Application Deadline: 
Wednesday, March 27, 2013 (All day)

ACLS invites applications for the Public Fellows program, which will place 20 recent Ph.D.s from the humanities and humanistic social sciences in two-year staff positions at partnering organizations in government and the nonprofit sector. Fellows will participate in the substantive work of these organizations and receive professional mentoring. The fellowship provides a stipend of $65,000 per year as well as individual health insurance.

This program, made possible by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, aims to expand the role of doctoral education in the U.S. by demonstrating that the capacities developed in the advanced study of the humanities have wide application, both within and beyond the academy. Now in its third year, this innovative initiative allows talented humanities Ph.D.s to gain valuable, career-launching experience in areas such as arts management, development, communications, public administration, and digital media.

ACLS seeks applications from Ph.D.s who have received their degrees in the last three years and who aspire to careers in nonprofit administration and public service by choice rather than circumstance. Competitive applicants will have been successful in both academic and extra-academic experiences.

The deadline for submitted applications is Wednesday, March 27, 6pm. Find details at the ACLS website.
