The Mellon/ACLS Dissertation Innovation Fellowship program is designed to support emerging scholars as they pursue bold and innovative research in the humanities and interpretive social sciences. The program is made possible by a grant from the Mellon Foundation.
The program will make awards to doctoral students who show promise of leading their fields in important new directions. The fellowships are designed to intervene at the formative stage of dissertation development, before writing is advanced, and provide time and support for emerging scholars’ innovative approaches to dissertation research – practical, trans- or interdisciplinary, collaborative, critical, or methodological. The program seeks to expand the range of research methodologies, formats, and areas of inquiry traditionally considered suitable for the dissertation, with a particular focus on supporting scholars who can build a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable academy.
In this webinar, Assistant Dean Teresa Delcorso-Ellmann will share tips and advice on crafting a competitive and compelling Mellon-ACLS Dissertation Innovation Fellowship Application with participants.
The tips and advice are drawn from Assistant Dean Delcorso-Ellmann’s recent meeting with ACLS program staff.
All students working on an application for the program are encouraged to attend. The session will be on zoom and will be recorded.
