Workshops for humanities-based awards are held twice a year, in the spring and fall. Below are examples of three outstanding organizations to which we urge faculty to apply.

American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS)

The ACLS Fellowship Program invites research applications in all disciplines of the humanities and humanities-related social sciences. The ultimate goal of the project should be a major piece of scholarly work by the applicant. ACLS does not fund creative work (e.g., novels or films), textbooks, straightforward translation, or pedagogical projects.

National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH)

Fellowships support individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both. Recipients usually produce articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations, editions, or other scholarly resources. Fellowships support continuous full-time work for a period of six to twelve months.

National Humanities Center (NHC)

The National Humanities Center offers 40 residential fellowships for advanced study in the humanities during the academic year.
