The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) is pleased to announce its 2024-25 fellowship and grant competitions. ACLS offers programs that promote research across all fields of the humanities and interpretive social sciences.

Our application, peer review, and award processes aim to promote inclusive excellence, and we welcome applicants from groups that are underrepresented in the academic humanities and from across the diverse landscape of higher education.

Application deadlines vary by program. ACLS is now accepting applications for fellowship and grant programs with September, October, and early November deadlines. Other programs, including The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Program in Buddhist Studies, ACLS Digital Justice Grants, and the Luce/ACLS Program in China Studies, will begin accepting applications in the coming months.
