In 2023, the ACLS Leading Edge Fellowship Program, supported by the Mellon Foundation, will offer 22 two-year fellowships partnering recent humanities and interpretive social sciences PhDs with organizations advancing social justice and equity in communities across the United States. The fellowships are designed to draw on the humanistic skills, capacities, and frameworks developed in the course of earning the PhD and provide a range of networking and career-building opportunities.

This year, ACLS is partnering with 22 nonprofit organizations including the Campaign for Southern Equality (Asheville, NC), Gender Justice (Saint Paul, MN), and Strategic Action for a Just Economy (Los Angeles, CA).

Applications for Leading Edge Fellowships are due Wednesday, March 15, 2023, at 9:00 PM EDT.
