The American Council of Learned Societies is committed to supporting scholarship that has the potential to significantly advance fields in the humanities and related social sciences. We are equally dedicated to ensuring that the scholars and research we support truly reflect the broad spectrum of perspectives represented in the global community of humanistic studies.

Peer review is a vital part of ensuring these high standards in both quality and inclusive excellence. Each year, we recruit over 600 reviewers with expertise in a wide variety of disciplines, representing institutions, learned societies, and independent research initiatives from around the world, to evaluate fellowship and grant applications and select awardees.
