ACLS Names 20 Public Fellows in 2013


ACLS Names 20 Public Fellows in 2013

7/11/2013 - The American Council of Learned Societies is pleased to announce the 2013 cohort of ACLS Public Fellows. Now in its third year, this innovative fellowship initiative allows recent humanities PhDs to gain valuable, career-launching experience in areas such as arts management, communications, public administration, and digital media. The ACLS Public Fellows program is made possible by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

"ACLS developed the Public Fellows program to help expand the career horizons of recent PhDs beyond the traditional academic trajectory. The response from recent graduates and partnering agencies alike has been remarkable and encouraged us to significantly increase the number of awards this year,” said Nicole Stahlmann, director of fellowship programs. “Indeed, we find that ACLS Public Fellows quickly become invaluable to their host organizations, which is a clear testament not only to the fellows' talent and motivation but to the wide applicability of their PhD training as well."

This year's 20 ACLS Public Fellows will take up two-year assignments at a diverse set of partnering organizations in the government and non-profit sectors, including the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, Amnesty International, and the Center for Investigative Reporting. A full list of the 2013 ACLS Public Fellows and their placements can be found here.

The selection of this year's fellows was especially competitive, with applications to the program more than doubling in number from the previous year. More information about the program, including a list of fellows and host organizations from the program's first two cohorts, is available here.
