The American Council of Learned Societies is pleased to announce the fourth competition of the Leading Edge Fellowship program, which demonstrates the potential of humanistic knowledge and methods to solve problems, build capacity, and advance justice and equity in society. Leading Edge Fellowships place recent humanities PhDs with nonprofit organizations committed to promoting social justice in their communities. Fellows take on substantive roles that draw on the skills and capacities honed in the course of earning the humanities PhD, including advanced communication, research, project management, and creative problem solving. This initiative is made possible through the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
Fellows receive a stipend of $62,500 in year one and $65,000 in year two, plus health insurance and professional development funding. Tenure is 24 months beginning in September 2022.
