Andrew W. Mellon Foundation/ACLS Early Career Fellowship Program


The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation/ACLS Early Career Fellowship program was created to provide support for young scholars to complete their dissertation and, later, to advance their research after being awarded the PhD. The Mellon/ACLS Dissertation Completion Fellowships program currently makes awards to advanced graduate students. Information about Recent Doctoral Recipients Fellowships, which are no longer offered, is available here. A grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation supports this program.
