Call for Fellowship Proposals

The American Community Program seeks to strengthen the humanities by bringing colleagues and students together to reflect and discuss important issues in life. These fellowships nurture and inspire scholarly/pedagogical/ creative/civic engagement activities in the humanities through the exploration of shared interests. The ACP is instituting a new program in which fellowships up to $500 will be awarded to fund informal, interdisciplinary working groups in the humanities.
