ACLS invites applications for Luce/ACLS Dissertation Fellowships in American Art, which are designated for graduate students who are pursuing research on the history of art and visual culture of the United States, including all aspects of Native American art, and who are at any stage of PhD dissertation research or writing. ACLS believes that humanistic scholarship benefits from inclusivity of voices, narratives, and subjects that have historically been underrepresented or under-studied in academe. We also believe that institutional diversity enhances the scholarly enterprise, and we encourage applications from PhD candidates from all types of institutions in the United States.
Seven fellowships are available for a non-renewable, continuous nine-to-twelve month term to be held between July 2022 and May 2024. The fellowships may be carried out in residence at the fellow’s home institution, abroad, or at any other appropriate site for the research. The fellowships may not be used to defray tuition costs or be held concurrently with any other major fellowship or grant. The entire fellowship term must conclude before the fellow receives the PhD.
The total award of $42,000 includes a stipend and additional funds for travel and research. This program is made possible by the generous support of the Henry Luce Foundation.
