The American Council of Learned Societies is pleased to announce the results of its 2010-11 fellowship competitions. Nearly $15 million was awarded to 350 scholars worldwide, making ACLS a major source of support for humanistic scholarship in the United States.
The 2011 fellows and grantees include:

- ACLS New Faculty Fellows, recent Ph.D.s appointed to two-year positions at universities and colleges across the United States where their particular research and teaching expertise augment departmental offerings
Browse new and recent recipients and their funded projects. The 2011 ACLS Public Fellows, recent Ph.D.s appointed to positions in the nonprofit and government sectors, and the African Humanities Program Fellows will be announced later in the summer.
"All ACLS fellowships are awarded through a rigorous multi-tier peer-review process," says Nicole A. Stahlmann, Director of Fellowship Programs. "The researchers and projects that were selected for ACLS funding represent excellence in their fields and areas."
