ACLS Public Fellows Competition for Recent PhDs

The American Council of Learned Socieites invites applications for the sixth competition of the Public Fellows program. 

This initiative, made possible by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, aims to expand the role of doctoral education in the United States by demonstrating that the capacities developed in the advanced study of the humanities have wide application, both within and beyond the academy. The Mellon/ACLS Public Fellows program allows PhDs to gain valuable, career-building experience in fields such as public policy, development, conservation, arts and culture, and digital media.

ACLS seeks applications from recent PhDs who aspire to careers in administration, management, and public service by choice rather than circumstance. Competitive applicants will have been successful in both academic and extra-academic experiences.

Stipend:  $65,000 per year, with health insurance coverage for the fellow
Tenure: Two years; start date in mid-July or early September 2015, depending on the position
